"The first duty of an education is to stir up life, but leave it free to develop."

Dr. Maria Montessori

Hanover Montessori Children's House is a Montessori inspired program. We believe in Maria Montessori's research and observations that children develop in 3 year cycles and aim to enhance these cycles. Our desire is to provide children with the opportunity for refinement of motor skills, hand-eye coordination, social skills, academics and spiritual wellbeing.


Montessori is a philosophy and method of education with the fundamental understanding that a child learns best within a social environment which supports each individual's unique development. Dr. Maria Montessori based this new education on her scientific observations of young children's behavior.


She called it a 'Children's House' and based the program on her observations that young children learn best in a nurturing environment, filled with developmentally appropriate materials that provide experiences contributing to the growth of self-motivated, independent learners.
