Where children learn
Nestled in a park-like setting in the heart of Kirkwood, our
school is a unique community where children are free to be themselves.
At Kirkwood Children’s
House, your child will explore knowledge in a prepared environment
with stimulating materials and guidance from our certified Montessori
Where children grow
We inspire and challenge children to reach their own full potential.
Our “prepared” environment guides the development of
skills in the areas of practical life, sensorial, science, language,
math and the arts. The age range in the Montessori classroom encourages
younger children to learn from older ones. Meanwhile, older children
reinforce skills and knowledge, and grow confident with the satisfaction
that comes from helping others.
Kirkwood Children’s House is a community designed for children,
a nurturing place to make friends and learn cooperation. In this
positive, multi-cultural environment, children learn to accept individual
differences and develop a sense of interdependence.
The teachers of Kirkwood Children’s House develop positive,
long-lasting relationships with the children through mutual trust
and respect. Sensitive to the social and emotional needs of children,
our teachers create an environment where your child is always supported.
Where children are free to be themselves
Independence is a cornerstone of the Montessori philosophy. Kirkwood
Children’s House is a calm, ordered place where your child
is free to develop at a natural pace, according to his or her own
capabilities. Our teachers guide the child’s natural curiosity
and love for knowledge, building confidence and self-esteem.
Encouraged to make decisions and exchange ideas at such an early
age, Montessori children typically develop exceptional problem-solving
and communication skills, vital to success later in life.
