Our Policies

The page below offers answers to a few initial questions that you might have.  A complete list of Maria's House Montessori policies is included in our annual Family Handbook.


Who provides my child lunch?


You do.  We're happy to store your child's refrigerated items in our large commercial fridge.

Who provides my child's snacks?


We do!  Healthy food choices are available throughout the day through Practical Life works and at Afternoon Tea.  Children are able to choose, prepare, and enjoy their snacks at their leisure.


What if I accidentally forget my child’s lunch?


Don't worry!  Maria’s House prepares a daily selection of salad, fruit, soup, fresh-baked breads and the like to supplement our explorers’ lunch.  Your child will always be well taken care of.


What Uniform items will my child need?

Maria’s House uniforms are composed of:
♦ MHMI polo shirt
♦ MHMI winter sweater
♦ MHMI khakis
♦ Brown belt
♦ Brown dress shoes
♦ Pair of outside exploration shoes (sneakers, etc.)



Do you ever have special celebrations?

Yes, we do.  As an occasion approaches, Maria’s House will share the details with you in writing and in person.
