  • An integral part of the Montessori philosophy is the belief that children learn through personal experience. The summer at Montessori Children’s House focuses on increasing the child’s awareness, particularly in the area of life sciences. The summer is an ideal time for exploration of our natural areas, bird life and other animal life surrounding our school. The children plant and maintain their own garden of flowers and vegetables.  Many practical life activities like washing, scrubbing and polishing are moved outdoors. The program is designed to involve children in environmental education through interactive stories, songs, and games.  They create arts and crafts projects and conduct experiments and scientific studies.  Regular cooking classes take place in our summer kitchen and feature healthy products picked from the MCH garden. Outdoor exploration includes nature walks and scavenger hunts as well as creating a mini-Farmer’s Market and lemonade stand.


    Come frolic with Rose the bunny outside in the spacious natural play area and help us harvest from the garden and feed the chickens. We would love to spend the summer with you!
