From the Director:
Children's House Montessori School is a full member of the American Montessori Society. The Montessori classroom is a "living room" for the children. Students choose their work from the self-correcting materials displayed on open shelves, and work in specific areas. Over a period of time, the children develop into a "normalized community," working with high concentration and few interruptions. Normalization is the process whereby a child moves from being undisciplined to self-disciplined, from disordered to ordered, from distracted to focused, through work in the environment. The process occurs through repeated work with materials that captivate the child's attention. In addition to our Montessori Curriculum, students participate in weekly art and music classes to supplement what is already available in the classroom setting. We hold two musical performances for the parents -- one in December and one in May. The one in May coincides with our annual art show, displaying multiple pieces by each of our students.
