Montessori Childrens Schoolhouse is a parent-owned school implementing Montessori principles to develop independent, competent and socially responsible individuals.
Our mission is to use qualified staff, enriched Montessori environments, and parental involvement to develop the social, emotional and cognitive needs of our culturally diverse student enrollment.

The carefully prepared environment is structured to meet the individual needs of each child, thus allowing children to progress at their own pace.
The environment is prepared to address all aspects of the childs development.
The Montessori curriculum, which interrelates basic, scientific and cultural areas, is designed to provide materials and activities to furnish unlimited sources of discoveries and to offer constant challenges to be mastered.
Our goal is to enable children not only to develop an appreciation of learning, but also to develop to their potential.
