Willow Oak Montessori Children’s House, serving children 3 through 6 years of age, strives to assist students in achieving their unique potential as responsible global citizens by nurturing self-confidence and independent decision making in a stimulating, creative, and diverse Montessori community.

Montessori is an educational philosophy rooted in the observations and research of Dr. Maria Montessori.
Montessori teachers are trained to observe each child’s individual interests and development level. The teachers prepare the classroom so that each child is free to independently choose his/her work throughout the work cycle. Based on her observations, the teacher presents “lessons” to the children from a variety of subject areas.
Children are encouraged to choose and repeat these lessons independently.  Many of the Montessori materials have a “control of error,” allowing the child to independently correct his/her own mistakes.  Children can choose to work alone or with friends.
Montessori classrooms also grant children the opportunity to independently care for themselves, their peers, and their environment. The mixed-age environment creates a family-like rather than competitive community.  Because each child typically stays with the same teacher for three years, an incredible bond is formed between the teacher and each member of the community.
