Bala House Montessori – Experience the Montessori Difference

Bala House Montessori offers preschool, kindergarten, extended care, and summer camp programs carefully designed for children 3 to 6 years old living in the greater Philadelphia area. Our programs nurture and lead children through a physical, intellectual, and social-emotional path that is well prepared but constantly changing to meet their needs and interests.

The Montessori method of education is grounded in the concept that children are motivated by both a natural curiosity and a love of knowledge. A Montessori school cultivates a child’s innate desire to learn by setting up an environment that allows them to learn at their own pace, according to their own capabilities. Children acquiring basic skills in this instinctive way gain an early enthusiasm for learning while developing independence, self-discipline, and respect for others. Since 1969, Bala House Montessori has provided an intimate learning environment where children are respected, the curriculum is challenging, and the classrooms are welcoming and peaceful.  In partnership with families, our result is confident, happy children who carry a love of learning with them for a lifetime.
