CHMS brings all-day Montessori education to Del Ray!

Children’s House Montessori School Rendering

Children’s House Montessori School (CHMS) looks forward to opening in Del Ray for toddlers and preschoolers in August 2024.

As CHMS prepares the campus for the fall it remains mindful of an important priority: supporting working parents. It also understands that the days are long and the years are short for young families. Balancing demanding professional and personal responsibilities while ensuring their child receives a high-quality education from caring and qualified professionals can be challenging for parents.

CHMS provides parents the flexibility to choose what daily school schedule fits best for their family, offering three options: a half-day program from 8 a.m.-12 p.m., a part day program from 8 a.m.-3 p.m., or a full day program from 8 a.m. to as late as 5 p.m.

CHMS’ Montessori curriculum features hands-on materials, individualized lessons, and socialization. Students progress through eight subject areas that teach them to practice independence and work collaboratively with their younger and older friends.

Their full day Enrichment Program (EP) is a fun and dynamic way for children to end their school day. During EP, students engage in small group outdoor and indoor activities that purposely promote gross motor movement, fine motor skills, and critical thinking. Students learn developmental milestones, like throwing a ball, hopping on one foot, catching a ball, jumping in hoops and more, as they progress throughout the school year. Children also learn to play games like soccer, basketball, and red-light green light, and to socialize with another.
