General School Mission

"Montessori Children's House provides high academic standards in an atmosphere that promotes personal responsibility, self-esteem, freedom of choice, love and respect. Montessori educators believe that children progress best when allowed to work independently, at their own rate and pace. They watch for your child's readiness to learn a particular subject, without pushing, as pushing may cause your child to lose interest and the love of learning. Children are allowed to learn according to their developmental needs and to develop to their full potential. Your child will be motivated from within by a natural curiosity and love for knowledge which will carry over beyond the classroom, into adult life, creating a truly educated person fully capable of dealing with all aspects of his or her individuality and surroundings.
