Welcome to the Montessori Children's House of Nantucket

The Montessori Children’s House of Nantucket works to create an environment that inspires children to develop inner discipline, self assurance, and a love of learning.

The aim of Montessori education is to foster competent, responsible, adaptive citizens who are lifelong learners and problem solvers.

Learning occurs in an inquiring, cooperative, nurturing atmosphere. Students increase their own knowledge through self- and teacher-initiated experiences.

"The truth is that when a free spirit exists, it has to materialize itself in some form of work, and for this the hands are needed. Everywhere we find traces of men's handiwork, and through these we can catch a glimpse of his spirit and the thoughts of his time.

The skill of man's hand is bound up with the development of his mind, and in the light of history we see it connected with the development of civilization". - Dr. Maria Montessori
