Our administration and classroom teachers are Montessori trained through a MACTE (Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education) accredited Montessori teacher education program. MACTE is the international standard setting and accrediting body for Montessori teacher education. MACTE is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and is committed to the effective preparation of Montessori teachers. Its mission is to recognize, assure, and promote the high quality of that preparation through its system of accreditation for the ultimate purpose of advancing Montessori student learning.
The Children’s House is a Montessori preschool and kindergarten that guides a diverse group of children to become joyful and confident lifelong learners who respect others and the world around them.
Children’s House students are extraordinary citizens: independent, responsible, unique and confident in their abilities to influence their world.
Meet Our Staff
Our classroom teachers are Montessori trained in Early Childhood (ages 3-6) and work in co-teaching teams in our multi-age classrooms. Competent, caring, professional faculty guide children on their individual paths of learning each day.
Our teachers are trained to present challenging and developmentally appropriate lessons and materials based on their observations of each child’s engagement and developmental needs. Ongoing professional development for our faculty is an important component in empowering them to meet the needs of all children.
What Our Faculty & Staff Are Saying
~ Katie, K-Club Educator ~
“It is the best moment when you see a child work through a challenging concept or task, the empowering moment of ‘I did it myself’ builds confidence and resiliency. This value of independence and self-awareness is a cornerstone of the Montessori Method that Children’s House reverently follows. .”
~ Heather, Classroom B Teacher ~
“Children’s House is like home!”
~ Diana, Classroom A Teacher ~
“Children’s House is so special because our community can come together, organize and cooperate to provide truly unique and special opportunities for the children, their families and our faculty. “
