Welcome to Children’s House Montessori School
Located in Highland Park, New Jersey, Children’s House Montessori School has been a mainstay in the community for over 40 years. Since 1970, our school has provided an outstanding and authentic Montessori education for children between the ages of two to six years of age.
Children’s House is a full affiliate with the American Montessori Society (AMS) and licensed by the State of New Jersey’s Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS). In addition we are members of the New Jersey Montessori Association Corporation (NJMAC). Our administrators attend quarterly meetings and our entire staff attend and participate enthusiastically in the professional development opportunities offered at the NJMAC Annual Conference the first Friday of every March.
