School to Celebrate 10th Anniversary

Children’s House Montessori School in Reston will celebrate its 10th anniversary with a reunion for current and alumni families on Friday, April 12. The event will be at the school from 5 to 8 p.m. Families past and present will be able to share a picnic together, enjoy a celebratory cake, and play on the natural playscape playground.

Children’s House Montessori School was started in 2003 by Keturah Collins, owner and director, and Karen Disney, assistant director, with one classroom and 10 children. It quickly grew to two classrooms and has stayed a small, family-oriented school throughout the last 10 years. Today there are nearly 40 students, over 90 alumni families, and seven staff members.

The school’s program is based on the philosophy of Maria Montessori who believed that that purpose of formal education was to “learn how to learn.” Here children are allowed to make choices for their own learning, develop independence through their work in the classrooms, and learn respect for others and all living things.
