Chimes, Montessori House of Children has been offering education based on the Montessori Method to children since 2006. The Montessori methodology was developed over a century ago by Dr. Maria Montessori based on her research and understanding of a child’s learning tendencies as they unfold in prepared environments. The Montessori Method is a comprehensive approach addressing children’s needs from birth to adulthood. The prepared environments are built using equipment and techniques that form part of the Montessori Method and are structured to maximize a child’s independent learning and exploration.
We are committed to providing a prepared environment that encourages children to develop practical, intellectual, physical and social discipline. The prepared environment with a trained guide promotes independence, self-discipline, confidence, and respect for a child’s personal and social life. Chimes strives to follow the educational philosophy and methods developed by Dr. Maria Montessori and provide an environment that encourages children to develop to their potential.
