From our friends at Montessori Children’s House:
Montessori Children’s House is located in Portland’s South Waterfront neighborhood, and offers both Toddler (ages 16-36 months) and Primary (ages 3-6) Montessori programming, both during the academic school year and the summer term. They are currently accepting 2022-23 school year applications for Primary (ages 3-6) enrollment!
MCH’s Toddler community is designed to foster the young child’s emerging independence and desire for exploration. MCH’s Primary classrooms are purposefully prepared environments designed to support the child’s unique abilities and interests.
Authentic Montessori education builds a child’s capability to become a fulfilled and productive adult, able to contribute to the world at home, at work, and in their community. Maria Montessori’s observation of human development from birth to adulthood led to an educational approach that supports children’s natural development, providing the skills and support to reach their full potential in life. With a strong emotional, behavioral, and moral foundation, children become motivated, active, and independent learners who are prepared for the real world.
Montessori education develops the whole child. Academics and knowledge-building are key qualities of Montessori, as are the abilities to think creatively and understand the needs of others. When these fundamental skills are fostered early in life, children gain the capabilities to problem-solve, persevere, and interact prosocially with others.
Montessori teachers are experts in child development, guiding children to learn independently and reach their unique potential. Children have the freedom to engage in their own learning experience and the Montessori teacher is there to support the child throughout this process.
Montessori learning environments are designed to fit the specific needs of each child’s stage of development. Learning is all about the activity and independence of the child to find out what they need at each particular moment.
