Montessori Children’s House: Foundation For Life

What do parents want for their children’s future?

Overwhelmingly, it is that they are happy (including job satisfaction) and successful (financial stability), according to a survey released in 2023 by Pew Research Center.

As parents, how do we give our children a strong foundation for life? What essential traits or skills are necessary for both success and happiness?

By the end of a child’s years in our Children’s House classrooms, most children will have been introduced to the following academic concepts:

  • Numbers with quantities up to 1000
  • Decimal systems
  • Addition and subtraction with 1, 2 and 3 digit numbers
  • Multiplication and division with 1, 2 and 3 digit numbers
  • Phonetic sounds and names of the letters of the alphabet, upper and lower case
  • Spelling
  • Phonograms
  • Sight words
  • Reading and writing
  • Explore culture and geography of the world, including art and music
  • Science such as biology, botany, anatomy, zoology, engineering


Not only this, but when students finish their capstone kindergarten year at Sonnet, they have learned to work in a cooperative environment, understanding how their choices can positively or negatively impact their classroom community. They have found the satisfaction of leading younger classmates by example and the joy of being able to provide assistance. They are coached through peace-making and conflict-resolution, building a repertoire of essential skills. They are modeled respect through interactions between teachers and students, and from student to student.
