Since 2001, Kinderhouse Montessori has been providing top-quality, AMI-certified Montessori education in San Diego. We are committed to staying true to the methodology developed over a century ago by Dr. Maria Montessori and is based on the research and observations of the learning tendencies of children. The Montessori method takes place in a prepared environment and is structured to maximize a child’s independent learning and exploration. It offers a unique, natural approach that encourages children to follow their interests.
At Kinderhouse Montessori School we love each and every child at our schools unconditionally. Each child is unique and each child deserves individual nurturing, attention, stimulation, and education. We adhere to the Montessori principles and the standards set by AMI and will always strive to be the best teachers, work with the best materials, and provide the warmest environment. We will treat all members of our Kinderhouse family – children, parents, teachers, and staff – with the utmost respect.
We will always be truthful to our children, teachers, staff members, and parents. We will keep our promises, and we will uphold our principles and follow our policies. We seek to understand our children and their circumstances. We care for the “whole” child and his family. We strive to build a community around our children, their families, our teachers, and our neighbors. We want to cultivate the child’s sense of belonging and cohesion. We take responsibility for educating each child over a three year period so that they have a solid foundation upon which to build their lives. We are responsible for teaching them to read, write, add, subtract, multiply, divide, analyze, cooperate, communicate, and to be inquisitive and independent.
Our mission is to educate children of all cultures and backgrounds using the Montessori methods in compliance with AMI standards to provide a solid foundation for the rest of the children’s lives. Our vision is to provide the best early childhood education in a home-like environment through the use of the Montessori philosophy for people of all cultural and economical backgrounds around the world. Every child should have the opportunity to learn about life through the natural Montessori methods.
