Grounded in Montessori principles and philosophy, our mission is to cultivate the greatest potential within every person.
To live in a world where the "whole person" is recognized and valued.
We are committed to following the principles and practices of Montessori philosophy. This authenticity can be seen in the physical classroom environments, the education levels and certification of staff, and in the core values of the school.
Our Focus on Nature
At Montessori House for Children and Elementary School, we are dedicated to actively engaging students in the natural world. We view this engagement as a vital part of physical, psychological and intellectual development.
Each classroom has access to outdoor patio and garden areas. Children participate in maintaining and cultivating life cycles of plants and animals in our butterfly, flower and vegetable gardens. We are also proud to be part of the ECO School program, through the National Wildlife Foundation.
