Making Excellence Affordable

Understand not only the cost of a thing, but its value.   ~ Thomas Jefferson

We know the deep and lasting value of early childhood education.  We also know that an authentic Montessori Primary Program with trained and certified faculty tends to cost more per month than daycare.  At Maria’s House, we believe that excellence isn’t exclusive.  Click here to explore our grants and aid page, or talk with us directly to see what we’re doing to keep real Montessori affordable.

Summertime is Coming...

Our weekly summer program, Ponte Montessori, is an adventure not to be missed.  Registration is ongoing.  Each week, forty lucky 3-6 year olds will enjoy the wonder of summer in a Montessori House.  From fencing to pizza making, golf to rocketry, our children, guides and gifted adjuncts will share remarkable days that won't soon be forgotten.  And, YES, all of our advanced developmental programming will still be in force.  Development doesn't take a vacation.  Neither do we.  Click here to learn more...

Explore Early Childhood With Us...

We understand the journey that you and your child are taking.  Beyond our work as Montessori educators and early childhood specialists, we're parents and siblings, informed by our own developmental paths, constantly learning and growing.  The search for beautiful and lively early childhood education is familiar to our faculty and staff.  It's what led us to the Montessori method in the first place.  And it's what brought you here.

We encourage you to explore our website if you have time.  You can also call our Doylestown House at 610-290-5019 to speak directly with our Executive Director, Laine Walker.

Or, you can request a Family Information Packet (PDF or US Mail) here. Maria's House is enrolling now for our spring term.  Welcome to the wonderful world of Montessori!
