" Montessori environment... which includes classrooms rich in Montessori materials and staffed with Montessori trained, state-certified teachers. The Children's House of Bucks County is affiliated with the American Montessori Society.
A well-rounded experience... which addresses the academic, social, emotional, physical and ethical needs of each child. This is accomplished through the practical life, sensorial, language and math materials of the Montessori methods, and other enrichment opportunities provided within the curriculum. As a result, students develop independence, self-motivation, responsible decision-making, respect for self and others, self-management, and the ability to view experiences from differing perspectives.
The basis for an enduring love of learning... by encouraging intellectual curiosity and building self-confidence through the self-identification and self-correction of mistakes. This prepares children for future educational and life experiences.
Individual responsiveness... by celebrating and nurturing each child's unique abilities, learning styles and interests, thereby promoting the realization of the child's potential.
Multi-age classrooms... by placing children ranging from 18 months through 36 months in the toddler program; children 2 years, 10 months to 6 years of age together in pre-primary and children 6 years to12 years of age together in elementary. This allows the younger children to benefit from the modeling demonstrated by the older children, and the older children to gain skills by helping and teaching the younger children.
A family-focused environment... by encouraging families to participate in school activities and Family School Association sponsored social events. The school also provides a parent education program which strives to reinforce and maintain continuity in the learning process between home and school, parent and teacher"
