Welcome to Petoskey Montessori School
We believe each child to be uniquely gifted, possessing a special potential.
The Petoskey Montessori Children’s House is a non-profit corporation founded to promote the total development of children according to the educational and philosophical principles outlined by Dr. Maria Montessori.
We believe each child to be uniquely gifted, possessing a special potential. Our charge is to “educate the human potential” by aiding the child's own in-born drive to develop her/himself. Children need an environment prepared to meet the interests and needs specific to their plane of development. Development is best aided through freedom to be active, to discover through exploration, and to communicate creatively. The adult must be both observer and supportive link, removing obstacles and connecting each individual with experiences to challenge that child’s particular potential.
Please contact the building administrator for COVID-19 concerns.
