Children’s House Montessori School of Reston

… for the love of learning

Children’s House Montessori School of Reston is located in a peaceful wooded setting in Reston, Virginia. CHMS is a small, family-oriented school that offers half-day and full-day Montessori programs for children 3 years of age through kindergarten. We believe that a child’s first school experience should be filled with curiosity, exploration, independence, and fun!

At Children’s House we are dedicated to providing an engaging learning environment; one that motivates children to make choices, ask questions, and solve problems. Children who are actively engaged in the learning process, become enthusiastic seekers of knowledge. It is our mission to inspire a lifelong love of learning.
