Montessori House of Children is devoted to the education of children 2 through 7 years of age. Based on the non-discriminatory philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori, the school is carefully prepared to nurture the mental, emotional and physical well-being of each child. The school is committed to the belief that children learn best in an atmosphere which values the uniqueness of the individual. Therefore, the role of the teacher is to identify and meet the needs of the individual child through planned and spontaneous experiences. We recognize that the early years are the most formative in a child’s development and that children need the opportunity to live as children, not simply as future adults.

Dr. Montessori was an Italian physician and educator. Born in 1870, she was the first woman to receive a medical degree at the University of Rome.

She developed her method of pre-school education over a forty-year period during which she observed children directly and worked with them personally. Dr. Montessori devoted her life to the education of children and is honored and respected throughout the world.

The Montessori Method has been used succesSFully with children all over the world. It is concerned with the development of each child as an individual.

The Montessori Method is based on the belief that:

  • Children are to be respected as individuals. They are different from adults and they differ from each other.
  • Children have a sensitivity and capacity for learning very different from that of adults.
  • The first six years of life are the most important periods of growth.
  • Children work not for profit and completion of goals like adults, but for the sake of activity in the development of mental, physical, and psychological abilities.
