School Notes

  • Montessori House of Children is devoted to the education of children 2 through 6 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 6 classrooms, has Montessori trained 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 Mandarin, French, Spanish, Gymnastics, Yoga and Sports. 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 preschool has holiday festivals, parades and onsite field trips and family events throughout the year. The culturally diverse community of educators and families makes the program unique.
