Children’s House Montessori School opens Del Ray campus for toddlers and preschoolers!

Children’s House Montessori School (CHMS) is pleased to announce the opening of our Alexandria campus in August 2024 at the intersections of Hume and Mt. Vernon avenues.

The newly renovated space will accommodate five classrooms for toddler and preschool students, ages two to six, and includes a nature-focused playground, pick-up/drop-off area, and parking. A warm and welcoming home awaits young learners in Del Ray!  

CHMS’s guiding mission is to provide young learners with a high-quality Montessori education in a safe, caring, fun, and stimulating environment that honors the unique talents of each child and nurtures a lifelong love of learning. CHMS’s core values emphasize practicing personal safety, strengthening school community, developing individual character, and adhering to Dr. Montessori’s educational principles. 

The Montessori educational method encourages self-directed learning guided by Montessori-credentialed staff within a curated classroom environment. Toddlers and preschoolers engage in purposeful individual and small group lessons with hands on materials, geared to develop a strong academic, social, and emotional foundation. CHMS students graduate as proactive, empathetic, prosocial, and prepared citizens, equipped with essential skills to excel.

CHMS has successfully served families at our Arlington campus for over 20 years and has been recognized regularly as a “Best of Arlington” preschool provider.

We look forward to welcoming Alexandria area families to our new, second campus! We are currently accepting applications for toddlers and preschoolers.
