At Kinderhouse Montessori, we ensure that the AMI standards are upheld to the highest degree. The environment is beautiful with large classrooms, lots of light, and beautiful materials. The administration really supports the Guides with anything that comes up.

I love working at Kinderhouse because I always feel fully supported by the administration and my fellow colleagues. We work closely as a team to provide the best education and care for each child. If I ever have a question about how to approach a certain situation or am in need of new ideas, I know I can count on my coworkers to help me out.

Working at Kinderhouse has been a wonderful journey. If you loved your AMI training and wish to find a school that stays true to the Montessori philosophy and theories, this is the school for you. Everyone in the school works very hard to stay true to the training. It was wonderful for me to find a school that I think is closest to my training and really helped me grow as a guide. Administrators are very supportive and will always stand by your side through ups and downs you may inevitably face throughout the year. Working with people that truly care about children and offering them true Montessori makes this feel like a place where we all grow – not a place of business.

Ms. Villegas – Spanish Guide
After completing my Primary training, I researched many AMI schools. From the first time I visited Kinderhouse, I knew that it was exactly the school at which I would like to begin my teaching career. It was such a warm and welcoming environment and many of the things that are very important to me – such as environmental awareness, social responsibility, and respect for children, parents, and staff – were also clearly a focus at the school.
