“Owning my own Montessori school was a dream of mine for many years that finally came true in 2003 with the opening of Children’s House. It is so satisfying to work with the families and staff that have been drawn to our special place. It is obvious that each child, parent, and staff member brings their talents, creativity and love here, making me proud to be the owner of Children’s House.”

Keturah Collins is the owner/director of Children’s House Montessori School, and is the lead Montessori teacher in the Sunrise Room.
Keturah’s career in early childhood education spans more than 45 years. She has served as a field consultant for interns taking their Montessori training, has been in the Montessori classroom for more than 30 years, and has worked in a “traditional” preschool setting for several years as well.
Keturah has been married to Henry Collins for 49 years and they have two grown children. Henry’s career in the U.S. Army provided the opportunity to live in Germany, Korea, and Norway, and travel extensively in Europe and Asia. Keturah enjoys sharing these cultures and experiences with the children in her classroom. She also loves nature and teaching understanding and appreciation for all living things.
“Some of my favorite memories from childhood are playing outside, making mud pies in the back yard with my younger brother, picking flowers for my Mom from the empty lot next door, and sitting in a tree at the bottom of the driveway waiting for my Dad to come home.”
Keturah loves springtime, chocolate mousse, and anything — anything — that’s PURPLE!
