Our House

Maria's House provides a full-day (8am-3pm), five-day Montessori Primary program, welcoming children 3-6 years of age to explore their world in a safe, engaging and thoroughly Montessori way, celebrating the unique developmental path that each of us travels.   Any child who is comfortably toilet trained and has outgrown the need for an afternoon nap (do any of us really outgrow that?) will be well-suited to the rhythm of daily life at our Doylestown casa.  Most days unfold like this:


Morning
7:50 am   Drop off begins at our circle with staff assistance
8:20 am  Gathering, flag raising and morning exercise
8:40 am   Morning rally at cubbies
8:45 am   Morning work period begins

Lunch
11:30 pm  Table setting and lunch
12:10 pm  Table clearing and cleanup

Afternoon
12:15 pm  Exploration (outdoors whenever the weather permits)
  1:00 pm  Afternoon rally at cubbies
  1:05pm   Afternoon work period begins 
  2:45pm   Flag lowering and farewells


For interested families, Maria's House provides two additional program opportunities each and every day: 

Afternoon Tea (3pm-4pm)
Academy (4pm-5pm)

Our extended care is also thoroughly Montessori, offering our young explorers opportunities for outdoor play, civilized snacks, instruction in music, food preparation, t'ai chi and more.  If you'd like to receive additional information via email or post or to speak with a member of our staff, please use the inquiry form below.  We'll be in touch soon.
