The Montessori Approach

The Montessori approach begins with a specifically designed environment that gives access to a variety of materials and objects to help children learn through exploration. This self-driven learning allows children to develop their unique talents and abilities through their own learning style, while building confidence and a sense of independence.


"I've been amazed at what our boys have learned while at the Children's House. They've learned how to read, add and subtract, and can identify every state on the U.S. map! More importantly, they've learned how to be independent self-starters and understand what it means to take responsibility for their own actions. We love the education that our boys have received while at Montessori, and we love the teachers there as well - they are all so patient and kind. It's obvious that the teachers truly care about their students and enjoy the work they do."— Ali Maloy
"Julianna has thrived in her Montessori classroom! She is celebrated for who she is while being challenged to become the very best version of herself. She is respected as a young person who is bright, focused, intelligent, charismatic, and has a love of learning. The wealth of knowledge and deep understanding that she has gained through her Montessori preschool experience has spanned from the foundations of reading and mathematics, to knowing the continents and countries of the world. Her teachers have created a learning community that is challenging, yet, yet serious.....structured, yet flexible. She has more than enjoyed her Montessori experience, and we will forever credit Montessori for giving her such a strong academic foundation."— Amie Gamboian
"I was skeptical about Montessori at first because I had heard it was 'unstructured', but my husband grew up with it so I agreed to try it. I have been so happy with our decision. Our daughter has absolutely thrived there. It is not unstructured at all, it is designed to understand and meet the needs of each individual child. It doesn't tailor the child's learning to their age, but rather their individual interests and abilities. It is amazing what a child can learn when you don't assume they can't! Our daughter is happy from the time we drop her off to the time we pick her up, and she always comes home having learned something new. The teachers are energetic, caring and dedicated. I would highly recommend this to any parent who wants their child to love to learn."— Laurie
"Our experience with Montessori has been nothing short of incredible. From all of the amazing staff, to the growth of our son, academically, creatively and personally. Thank you for making this such a magical place for our son to grow and learn. We are eternally grateful. We will miss you all and wish you all the very best!"— The Fosters
