We are located in the serene Oak Ridges area of Richmond Hill, serving King City, Aurora, Newmarket and Stouffville areas.
a caring home-like atmosphere
for children 1.5 to 6 years of age.
We are different from traditional daycare and childcare centers. Following Dr. Maria Montessori’s method and curriculum and our motto, “Nurturing one child at a time,” we provide individualistic learning for every child. Our highly experienced, skilled, and caring staff are passionate about nurturing every child to achieve their highest potential.
Opened originally as Bloomington Montessori in 1997, we moved to central Aurora in 2003 as Church Street Montessori, and we relocated to Oak Ridges in 2021 as KinderHaus Montessori. Our newly renovated school with a beautiful shaded backyard is ideal for our children to learn, socialize and play in a home-like setting.
Our seven core values – Integrity, Equality, Dignity, Respect, Compassion, Love, and Harmony – define our school’s identity and purpose and, in addition, reflect our sincere commitment to the Montessori philosophy and nurturing children.
We take pride in providing intellectually stimulating learning environments – curriculums, materials and teaching standards. We meet all the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) requirements for the age groups we cater to and are seeking to re-acquire AMI Recognition (Church Street Montessori was the 1st AMI Recognized school in the York Region). We are licensed under the Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014.
We offer a Montessori Toddler (1.5 to 3 years) and a unique Montessori Preschool/Casa program (2.5 to 6 years) that follow AMI curriculums.
Our Casa program is different from others by design. Taking advantage of our unique location in the serene Oak Ridges area of Richmond Hill, we combine our authentic Montessori curriculum with frequent walking trips to nearby parks, nature reserve, post office, bank, and other small businesses to make learning more practical and fun.
Our Toddler program is not just another daycare program. It is designed to appeal to the children’s natural desire to explore and learn. Guided by our staff, they gain confidence by becoming independent in handling everyday tasks by themselves, communicate clearly, and interact socially. It also prepares them for the next phase of their development.
Our before/after school programs are designed to be different from core Montessori programs so that children can easily differentiate between structured Montessori work cycles and free-play times.
During these times, we give freedom to children to engage in playful physical activities, crafts, and music rather than watching TV or playing video games (we do not have TV or computer gaming devices at school).
Please note that we offer unlimited nutritious snacks until the end of school. Rest assured that we will give our children the attention and the much-needed affection they ever so deserve.
Our love for children and our passion for nurturing them is beyond what words can describe. It will be our pleasure to host and care for your little ones. Rest assured that they will be loved and cared for in our home-away-from-home environment.
Come experience the little haven we have created for children. We are sure they will be thrilled to be here. And so will we.
Observing a classroom is important for understanding the learning environment and how we encourage each child towards learning through sensorial exploration and self-discovery. Watching the teacher-child interactions will also enable you to assess the skills of our teachers and our commitment to the Montessori method.
We understand the importance of observing a classroom in action in selecting a school for your children. We will make every effort to accommodate your visit. Please contact us to book a tour and arrange for an observation of our learning environment.
