The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child's own ability to learn.

Dr. Maria Montessori


Our Mission

The Montessori Schoolhouse mission is to provide a safe, nurturing, and peaceful environment for children of all abilities and backgrounds. The school works in partnership with parents to encourage the growth of developmental skills, curiosity, and the exploration of the potential of each child. Promoting the principles and methodology of Dr. Maria Montessori, the Schoolhouse aims to create a place where children are able to discover the joy and beauty of learning.

The Montessori Schoolhouse was founded in 1989 by a group of concerned parents who wanted to provide the best Montessori experience for their children.

We continue to be a non-profit, parent-run school. Our volunteer board of directors aims to provide the Monadnock region with the highest quality preschool and toddler programs. Our scholarship program supports our commitment to ensure opportunities for children from all socioeconomic backgrounds. We are also a licensed childcare provider for the State of New Hampshire’s Department of Health and Human services.
