Situated in the historic Hillcrest neighborhood, The Children's House Montessori School has been providing a Montessori education to generations for thirty-three years.
At The Children's House, the emotional, intellectual, physical, social and spiritual aspects of your child's growth are all of equal importance.
The prepared environment of the Montessori classroom ministers to the needs of the "Whole Child".
We begin with practical and social skills, not just academic skills.
Keeping track of personal belongings, putting things away, dressing oneself, sharing an adult, sharing materials and respecting the limits of the community, are some of the many aspects of total development which are the initial benefits of the Montessori pre-school class.  These are the foundations for growing independence.

Today my son and I were shopping at a store with vintage items. He recognized a piece of artwork similar to what was on the wall at CH (Roybal?) He said "Wow! Children`s House!" Later we saw a croquet set and he said "We did this at Children`s House!" I told him that I didn`t know that and he said "We did everything there. Whatever you paid for it, it was well worth it." He is 31 years old now. It makes me feel good as a parent to know that I made the right choice with his schooling. Thank you all for everything.

Love this school! I know they love my daughter and I feel safe and secure sending her to daycare every day. But beyond just being a "daycare", they're also nurturing her natural curiosity and teaching her so much. Her growth during her time at Children's House is phenomenal!

Our three-year-old son has been at CHMS for almost two years now and we absolute love it. His knowledge, confidence, and physical and verbal skills have all thrived. The teachers and administrators are all very sweet and communicate regularly via emails, newsletters, and in person. There is set curriculum that is child-led, as Montessori should be play-to-learn, which is how children learn best at the toddler and preschool age. Our son already knows his numbers, letters, continents, planets, animals, and multiple Spanish words. My husband and I are faculty at UAMS so education is obviously very important to us. We have been nothing less than extremely satisfied with our son's experience thus far.

Our son attends Childrens House, for about a year now, and it's been a life changer for his attitude and development. His teachers seem to really love their students, and their jobs.
