We are very proud to be recognized by the readers of Omaha Magazine as the Best Preschool in Omaha!

Do you want more than a traditional daycare, preschool, or childcare center in Omaha for your child? Montessori Children’s House offers Montessori programs for children ages 6 weeks to 6 years, and we nurture each child’s desire to blossom. 

MONTESSORI-CERTIFIED TEACHERS EXPERTLY GUIDE YOUR CHILD
Instructors are equipped with a Bachelor’s degree, as well as two years of Montessori training. Each teacher holds a Montessori AMS accreditation, and our school is an AMS full member site, which means we meet the standards of excellence of Montessori educators worldwide.

A MULTI-AGE CLASSROOM IS IDEAL FOR EARLY LEARNING
Children learn at their own pace! Children can build stronger relationships, the older children can show leadership and become mentors to their younger peers, and the younger children can model the older children. This arrangement mirrors real-life experiences where the reality is that they will be working with and across many chronological ages. 

INFANT PROGRAM | 6 WEEKS TO 18 MONTHS

YOUR BABY AS AN INVENTOR AND EXPLORER WITH RIE® EDUCARERS®
With the RIE® Educaring® Approach, babies are viewed and spoken to in ways that allow them to be active participants in their daily lives. The deep respect this approach engenders is the start of self-love and self-esteem.

CHILDREN ARE GIVEN THE SPACE TO EXPLORE FREELY
If your child is learning to grasp, they get more grasping opportunities. When they start to pull up, they’ll have more opportunities to pull up in their space. Through observations, teachers follow their interests so that they can explore freely.

ARTS AND CRAFTS SPARK YOUR BABY’S CREATIVE ABILITIES
Your baby will be introduced to expression through art because artistic expression begins early! Through a specialized art program, your child will develop motor skills and explore their imagination through creativity. 

TODDLER PROGRAM| 18 MONTHS TO 3 YEARS

ART PRACTICE INCREASES YOUR CHILD’S CREATIVITY
Your child explores a world of expression and creativity as they choose colors and textures to explore. Art practice also improves fine motor skills, making things like gripping a pencil easier.  

EACH CHILD LEARNS AT THEIR OWN PACE
By observing your child, providing the right lesson when they’re ready, and letting them practice until mastered, your child excels at every level. Montessori teachers emphasize process rather than product.

RESPONDING RESPECTFULLY WITH RIE© EDUCARING©
The RIE® Educaring® approach encourages responding to your child respectfully. We are the only school that boasts this additional education level and training for the teaching team that guides your child every day. 

PRESCHOOL PROGRAM | 2.5 TO 6 YEARS

MONTESSORI MATERIALS THAT TEACH THROUGH EXPLORATION
Your child is free to choose activities guided by their curiosity, to develop their strengths and talents. Montessori materials also have built-in challenges, so your child develops critical thinking, creativity, and problem-solving skills. 

MULTI-AGE CLASSROOMS HELP YOUR CHILD LEARN FROM PEERS
In a multi-age classroom, your child gains inspiration from older students and becomes a leader for younger students. A diverse mini-community helps your child learn through seeing empathy and kindness in action.

SELF-LED LEARNING BUILDS CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS
Montessori-educated teachers give equal parts guidance, structure, flexibility, and freedom. Your child practices reasoning as they question, probe, and make connections, growing into enthusiastic, self-directed learners.

My husband and I are new to Montessori but already we believe we have chosen a perfect fit for our daughter. The staff has made an enormous effort to get to know our family as well as make accommodations for our daughter’s medical needs. However, what struck me most during our short time here was how these individuals go above and beyond to care for the children and their families. I had provided a bag of 40 ounces of frozen breastmilk just in case our daughter needed extra throughout the day. Anyway, with the recent storms in Omaha, one of our daughter’s teachers went out of her way to check on the breastmilk that morning after the storms had passed and found that the power was out and my breastmilk had begun to thaw. Once I was informed about the situation by the lead instructor, the same wonderful teacher made another special trip out to our center so that we could attempt to save/utilize the breastmilk. All of this occurred on a Saturday. Fortunately, thanks to their efforts, my breastmilk was able to be refrozen per CDC’s guidelines and will be able to be utilized in the future. So, in short, we are very impressed with the care our family receives here and by our daughter’s teachers. We are incredibly excited to watch her grow and develop under the care of these wonderful instructors.

Our son has attended MEC’s House of Montessori (HOM) since he was 6 months old. As an educator, early childhood education and socialization is a priority in our household. The Montessori educational philosophy and MEC’s personal philosophy are a perfect fit for us. The classroom teachers at HOM are amazing. Our son has benefitted so much from the individualized educational opportunities provided as well as the warm, nurturing environment created by all staff members. It is a place where we feel safe and secure knowing our son is not only getting the best education, but the best care as well. Teachers are the single greatest factor in student success, and we have seen the fruit of HOM’s fabulous educators in our son’s social, emotional, and academic development over the last three years. While I would love to take credit for this, I would be remiss not to credit the HOM’s amazing teachers who have facilitated and supported his growth. One of the most impressive and appealing things about MEC is the administrative/ownership team. Teachers are the most important factor in student success, but administration and leadership is the most important factor in teacher effectiveness, and MEC has an amazing leader. Julie Roy is nothing short of incredible. Upon taking ownership of MEC, she immediately began investing in the schools. She purchased all new equipment, work for students, and initiated much needed updates to all the buildings— cosmetic updates, security updates, new outdoor nature and play areas...you name it, she improved it). My very favorite thing about Julie, though, is her dedication to her teaching staff. As a parent I love seeing all the wonderful things MEC administration regularly does to support the teachers’ health and well-being holistically! You can’t pour from an empty vessel, and Julie’s dedication to taking care of her teachers helps them teach to the best their abilities!
