Children's House Of Durango

  • Children's House of Durango provides an enriched learning environment for children based on Maria Montessori's philosophy and method.
  • Due to the nature of our "house" each subject is separated and taught in individual rooms with a teacher that is trained within her subject area.
  • The teacher in the classroom remains constant and the students rotate throughout the week on a set schedule.
  • During the course of a day a child will be exposed to 2 morning classes and an afternoon class of their choice.
  • Our program includes the five Montessori subjects, Practical Life, Sensorial, Math, Language, and Cultural.
  • In addition, we incorporate Spanish as a foreign language, art, and music appreciation.
  • Children’s House of Durango’s mission is to create an environment for children, in which they are encouraged to explore, create, learn, socialize, and develop concentration, coordination, and independence.
  • Our school is committed to developing within each child a sense of responsibility and interdependence with their community and the world.
  • Our philosophy encourages children to appreciate and respect nature and the environment.
  • We believe in the development of responsible and caring people who can direct their own lives and contribute to making the world a better place for future generations.

My daughter attended Children's House for preschool and kindergarten, and she loved it. Now my nephew is attending Children's House, and he is having an equally wonderful experience. Children learn independence and the foundation for elementary school in a loving, safe environment.
