Just as each child is unique, each school has aspects that make it distinctive.
Founded in 1970, Montessori Children’s House and School (MCHS) is located on several acres of green, wooded land in the residential Lake Highlands neighborhood of Dallas.
The overall feel of the facility is a little bit of country in the heart of the city. Each of the two playground areas includes large meadows, giant sandboxes, and playground equipment specifically designed to develop different aspects of the child’s coordination and motor skills, all in lushly green, shaded outdoor areas.
At a given moment a child becomes interested in a piece of work, showing it by the expression of his face, by his intense attention, by his perseverance in the same exercise. That child has set foot upon the road leading to discipline.
—Dr. Maria Montessori
