Bala House Montessori – Experience the Montessori Difference

Bala House Montessori is a private school in Bala Cynwyd, PA offering preschool, kindergarten, extended care, and summer camp programs carefully designed for children 3 to 6 years old.

Bala House Montessori serves families and their students from Bala Cynwyd, Merion Station, Narberth, Penn Valley and the greater Philadelphia area. While teaching fundamentals like reading, writing, and arithmetic, our programs nurture and lead children through a physical, intellectual, and social-emotional path. Our program is well-prepared while also flexible in order to adapt to meet the the individual needs and interests of each student.

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.
