Independence, a fundamental concept within Montessori education

This video series illustrates how independence is fostered in each of the classrooms at The Children’s House. Our classrooms have intentional and developmentally appropriate ways to foster independence at each age level. We hope this series sparks your interest and desire to learn even more about Montessori and how your child benefits from their prepared environment.
