Our Children's House program, for students ages 3-6, offers development in all areas of Montessori pedagogy including Language, Math, Sensorial, Cultural, Science, Practical Life, and Grace and Courtesy.
The Montessori classroom is a children's house. Children choose their activities from materials displayed on open
shelves. The classroom materials are divided into five specific content
areas. Through repeated work with materials that capture the child's
attention, they develop the capacity for concentration, order,
coordination, and independence. A self-disciplined, orderly, and
focused community gradually develops.
In the Montessori preschool, five distinct areas constitute the prepared environment:
The Montessori Children's House (Preschool & Kindergarten)
