“The teacher, when she begins work in our schools, must have a kind of faith that the child will reveal himself through work.”

In the Children's House, children begin learning practical life skills that develop their concentration, independence, fine and gross motor skills and personal and community responsibility. As children move through the three-year cycle, they engage in hands-on activities that provide them with the fundamentals for reading, writing and grammar. Through manipulation of concrete materials they learn the decimal system and mathematical operations.
Children are introduced to physical and cultural geography through puzzle maps, pictures, books and special presentations by parents and teachers. The Arts are woven through the curriculum to support our creative and interdisciplinary approach. Social skills as well as the ability to make appropriate choices are taught through grace and courtesy lessons and peer problem solving. We invite you to observe this classroom while asking yourself if it would be right for your child.
The third year of Children's House is our Kindergarten Program. Five-year-olds who are developmentally and socially prepared spend an extended work period with the Montessori teacher, exploring the academic areas of the Montessori Curriculum.
The Children's House is a five-day program, with options of a morning session or school day. Before care and Aftercare programs are available, as well.
