"The hands are the instruments of man's intelligence" - Maria Montessori

Our Little Children's House serves children that are between the ages of 18 months and three years old.  Maria Montessori believed that the first three years of life, are the most fundamental in the development of a human being.  There years provide a critical foundation for the person the child is to become and must thought of with the greatest respect.  She believed that younger children have incredibly absorbent minds, assimilating all that they see, hear and experience.
