We love the Montessori Children's House and have been going here since my son was 18 months. The new staff and teachers are wonderful and my son has truly flourished in this environment. They provide healthy lunches and snacks, open age grouping, and an effective education method that works developed by Maria Montessori. We love it here! As the children are learning letters they learn through their senses and first learn the sounds then to draw on sandpaper cut out letters then in a small board of sand (think zen garden for an office desk). The environment is very home-like, comfortable, sensorial, global, and human. When it is busy it has a beautiful humming sound as the kids grab their own work and begin their day under the observation and gentle guidance of the teacher, whose presence is hardly noticed by an outside observer. She floats and observes and facilitates. Snacks are healthy. Peaceful resolution of problems is a key focus. I volunteer for some Spanish education. Unstructured play is also key and very sandy. I shake and dust off the sand before helping my excited, engaged, and exhausted child into the car at the end of a day. They have a sand lion pet as well as a tadpole. My child is respected and loved here. The school has been open for 30 years under the guidance and direction of Erlene Weldon, who has given her life to this school in a town I was very surprised to house the Montessori method and was influential in our decision to relocate. They offer far more than any day care setting inspiring children to love to learn, think with all of their body, and become responsible little people very gracious and courteous.
