  • The Children's House Montessori is associated with the Montessori Institute of San Diego AMI Training Center. The school offers programs for Toddler (18 mos to 3 years), Primary (3-6 Years), and Elementary (6-12 Years). The active learning environments use the system of early childhood education created by Maria Montessori, which is based on observation and experimentation with children from diverse backgrounds.
  • The Montessori method employs scientifically designed educational tools that respond to the specific stages of development universal to all children.
  • Using this method we are able to provide a safe and stimulating environment which, through discovery and exploration, allows children to develop lifetime social, physical, emotional, and spiritual attitudes that lay a solid foundation for a socially responsible adulthood.
  • The end result of such an education is an independent, self-confident child with a genuine love of learning.
