"Never help a child with a task at which they feel they can succeed."


The foundation of Dr. Montessori’s educational theory was based on her observation that children possess an innate desire to explore, discover, and learn about their world. Accordingly, we offer an enhanced and enriched Montessori education. Our program includes mixed age groups (ranging in age over a one and a half year span), individual and group instruction, an enhanced cultural studies curriculum that embraces holidays and celebrations from around the world and several specialty programs including: Technology, Foreign Language, Music, Library, Art, Yoga, and Creative Fitness.

Children's Manor has a very innovative and comprehensive program in store for your child, one in which your child will grow in knowledge, self-awareness and confidence. At Children's Manor, classes are organized as a miniature society in which children work and learn together in harmony, while maintaining their individuality. The role of the teacher is to assist the child in developing independence while fostering a joy of learning. In addition to the three R’s (reading, writing & arithmetic), Children's Manor students are taught the R’s of Respect, Responsibility, Reasoning, Resilience, and Resourcefulness. Each child learns the importance of self-respect, respect for others and respect of the environment, and respect for their work. In our program, students develop fundamental academic and life skills that play an important role throughout their lives. We take a personalized approach so that each student advances at their own pace, regardless of his/her level of ability, learning style or social maturity.
