There are two main reasons why The Children's House of Bucks County is unique:


Each Child is Accepted and Respected for Who They Are

As a Montessori School, the Children's House of Bucks County provides all our students with an environment where they are valued, respected and accepted as unique individuals. We strive to build community in our classrooms and value  diversity. This is our school's culture. Come and see our classrooms in action.



It Really is an Individualized Educational Experience

Quite simply, one size does not fit all. Children's House provides each student with educational opportunities that are tailored to their individual needs. We do not teach all students as a homogeneous group, nor do we teach our kindergarten students to a standards-based curriculum simply to meet standardized testing requirements. Although other Montessori programs are adopting standards-based curriculum in order to follow current trends in public education, The Children's House continues to rely on the practical and tested Montessori method for all our students. As you can see from our curriculum, we provide a well-rounded educational experience that truly prepares our students for further educational experiences and exceeds public kindergarten school requirements.


As all parents recognize, each child is a unique person, with their own history, learning style, temperament, abilities and skills. For example, while one student may be in the early stages of reading, another may have more advanced reading skills. Because our Directresses know, understand and observe each child and keep detailed records on their needs and progress, they are able to respond to those needs. Using their observations, the Directresses provide lessons to each child on using specific Montessori materials that enable them to build on their existing skills and gain knowledge and understanding. By understanding each child's needs and providing the appropriate opportunities for self-learning, each child is given the opportunity to continue to progress at their own pace.
