Every Day is a Discovery.

Learning to learn. That is the very core of discovery. At the Children’s House Montessori School in Camden, Maine, discovery is the essence of each day. With each discovery, the imagination grows and the world of possibilities expands. Learning becomes an adventure.

Snow Day Policy

When the Camden-Rockport Public Schools (MSAD #28) are closed, we will be closed. We will not, however, participate in delayed starts but will maintain our usual schedule in such instances. In such cases, please travel safely and arrive when you can. Look and listen for announced MSAD #28 school closings on our facebook page, this website, VillageSoup, or telephone the school for a recorded announcement after 7:00 a.m.

We have openings!

Children's House currently has openings available in our Toddler Program for children 18 months-3 years. Families can choose 2, 3, or 5 days a week, half day schedule. Limited space is available in the Primary program for 3-6 year olds, including kindergarten. Openings are available in our Lower Elementary program for 6-9 year olds and in our new Upper Elementary program for 9-12 year olds.  Please contact Katy in the office for more information.

What is Montessori?

Montessori education promotes the development of the whole child, facilitates the natural growth of self-discipline, and cultivates each child's inherent joy in learning.
