Children’s House Montessori School is located in the lower level of the Unitarian Universalist Church in Reston (UUCR). The large classroom windows open onto the playground and a beautiful, wooded lot. We are not affiliated with UUCR, but have benefited from a positive relationship with our landlord since opening our doors in 2003.
We have two classrooms, the Sunrise Room and the Sunset Room – and a multi-purpose space – The Sunshine Room. Our two classes have an average of 20 – 22 students in each. Our classes are mixed-aged groupings of boys and girls between the ages of three and six. Our lead teachers are all Montessori certified.
Each classroom has an assortment of Montessori curriculum materials – from the familiar Pink Tower to the colorful continent maps! When you arrive for your tour, you are sure to see many Montessori materials in action!
Children have a cubby drawer to store their work that will go home at the end of the day, a spot on the lunch shelf for their lunch bag, and a hook in the Sunshine Room for their coat and backpack.
The Sunset Room has an attached bathroom that the children are able to use, and the Sunrise Room has easy access to the main bathroom right outside the school’s office.
With such a small space, children quickly become comfortable navigating their way from the bathrooms, the coat room, and the office, should they need a helping hand.
