We provide a pure Montessori preschool environment for children ages 2½ through 5 years old. Both half and full-day options are offered.
Montessori education is based on the scientific observations of Dr. Maria Montessori, the first female physician in Italy. Through her lifelong work with children, Dr. Montessori developed a unique method of education which recognizes the individual talents and interests of each child, while providing them with a peaceful, child-centered classroom in which to explore. This experience helps the children become self-motivated, independent learners.
Today, most educators and psychologists agree that the single most important period in the development of a person's intelligence is between birth and age five. A child's mind is extremely absorbent, and curiosity is at a peak during these early preschool years.
In the prepared Montessori preschool environment, children's minds form patterns for learning that serve as a foundation for continued education throughout their lives. Montessori children become enthusiastic, lifelong learners.
At Montessori Children’s House, we believe that all children carry unseen within them the person they will become. In order to develop their physical, intellectual, and social abilities to the fullest, they must have freedom—freedom to be achieved through order and self-discipline. As children grow and develop, they learn to create order from the sights and sounds around them, thereby gaining mastery of themselves and their environment.
The order found within the Montessori classroom allows children to develop at their own pace, according to their own capacities, in a non-competitive atmosphere. The environment at Montessori Children’s House helps the children gain an appreciation for their own unique talents and the beauty of the world around them. Montessori Children’s House is committed to providing a loving, nurturing environment where children can tap their true potential to become independent, self-confident, life-long learners.
