The Children's House Montessori School's mission is to provide an educational culture that respects the child's innate desire to learn. Our school fosters curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking while preparing every child to be a thoughtful, independent, and compassionate global citizen.


Children’s House Montessori School’s vision is to provide Montessori-based education to the children of Midcoast Maine beginning at 18 months of age. We are committed to staying true to Maria Montessori’s philosophy of education by creating a carefully designed environment for each program, wherein children are able to grow toward independence in a social environment, and are able to master skills and tasks at their own pace. Our teachers and supportive staff strive to provide creative and engaging classrooms and outdoor play where children are given the love, support, and guidance to thrive and ignite a lifelong love of learning.

In all that we do, Children's House Montessori School honors the tenets of respect, scholarship, fellowship, and environmental sustainability.

“Can't wait to go back to school”

My child has so much fun with her friends and teachers at CHMS. This weekend she told me that she can't wait to go back to school. Her excitement for learning in this place makes it worth every penny.
