Childrens Own School

  • Children's Own School provides a carefully planned, stimulating environment which will help children develop within themselves the foundational habits, attitudes, skills and ideas which are essential for a life-time of creative thinking and learning.
  • Decisions are made not for the convenience of administration, faculty or parents but on what is best for the children we serve.
  • COS recognizes that each child has a unique nature and, with that, the capacity to become a successful learner.
  • We promote opportunities for self-discipline and the development of the child's inner resources, which in turn promote self-esteem.
  • COS believes that parents and teachers are partners working together for the benefit of each child.
  • Our primary goal is to provide each child with an excellent Montessori education using the principles established by Dr. Maria Montessori and sanctioned by the Association Montessori Internationale.
