Minor Avenue Children's House

Program Overview

Minor Avenue Children's House is a busy and exciting learning environment designed to meet the needs of Infant, Toddler and Preschool age children. Children are encouraged to explore a wide variety of age-appropriate, hands-on activities, all at their own pace.

Our philosophy is based on Maria Montessori's principals for early care and education. We believe that children grow and learn best in a warm, nurturing, well-organized environment. Our teachers are sensitive and respectful to each child's individuality. We welcome a multicultural community of families and are committed to supporting this diversity in all areas of our early childhood program.  Minor Avenue is licensed for 104 children.
