Children’s House of Columbia is an early learning center that presents a Montessori program.
Children’s House serves children ranging from 2 years of age to 8. Children’s House maintains a strong commitment to providing access to the benefits of a Montessori-based education to all children without regard to race, gender, color, creed or national origin.
School staff, students, and parents work together to make our school a warm, caring community.
The same Montessori philosophy and approach seen in the preschool class guides the progression of the toddler class. Prescribed goals for toddlers include: (1) to develop body coordination, image and awareness, (2) to strengthen their senses of independence, self-direction, and concentration, and (3) to expand beginning social skills.
Maria Montessori believed that no human being is ever educated by another. Each must educate himself. Therefore, the goal of early childhood education should be to cultivate the child’s natural desire to learn. In the Montessori class, this objective is achieved by allowing the child to experience the excitement of learning through self-guided decision-making.
The kindergarten class is offered to children aged 5 to 6 years old, providing them with the enriched intellectual and social environment that they require.
“My 4-year-old boy said today, “Dear God, Please make me never leave Children’s House.” I thought it was incredibly sweet and speaks to how highly he values the environment, care, and love he receives at Children’s House.
Thank you for creating such a loving and enriching environment.”
