Montessori House Of Children

  • Montessori House of Children is devoted to the education of children 2 through 7 years of age.
  • Based on the non-discriminatory philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori, the school is carefully prepared to nurture the mental, emotional and physical well-being of each child.
  • The school is committed to the belief that children learn best in an atmosphere which values the uniqueness of the individual.
  • Therefore, the role of the teacher is to identify and meet the needs of the individual child through planned and spontaneous experiences.
  • We recognize that the early years are the most formative in a child's development and that children need the opportunity to live as children, not simply as future adults.
  • Each of the five classrooms, has two skilled teachers to guide the children through the day's activities.
  • The curriculum includes lessons in practical life and sensorial skills, language, math, science, history, geography, art, and world culture.
  • Additional classes are offered in French, Spanish, Gymnastics, and Piano.
  • The school is equipped with specially designed Montessori apparatus and materials from Holland, the center of Montessori education.
  • It provides two secure, airy playgrounds with slides, tricycles and play houses.
  • In addition to the regular activities, the pre-school has holiday festivals, parades and theatrical performances put on by the children.
