Montessori at MCHD

Montessori Children’s House of Durham Videos

 


We offer a strong foundation for the cognitive, social, and emotional development of each individual child as well as developing a strong sense of their citizenship in both the local and the global community. We are committed to enriching our children’s learning experiences through the guidance of expert teachers and a diverse curriculum. Cultivating respect, resilience, perseverance, and a sense of responsibility are our hallmarks.

To accomplish this, MCHD implements the classical Montessori principles: the development of concentration, order, and coordination, which foster the discipline required for independence. These skills enable the child’s freedom of inquiry, while multi-age classrooms promote individualized education. Confidence and enthusiasm is gained from the ability to self-initiate and from success.

These principles provide the framework for every level of our work — the layout of the classroom, the design of the curriculum, the modeling of each activity, and the intention of each lesson with the individual child.

In addition to our outstanding teaching staff, our programs are also set apart by a dedication to Montessori’s foundation in respect for the child. At MCHD, we respect the child’s innate desire to learn and inborn power to be competent.
