Word from a Parent:
“The Family Learning House has been a haven for our daughter – a place that integrates virtues based Montessori education with the joy and magic of early childhood. During our three years at the school we have witnessed our daughter and her classmates as well as teachers, staff and diverse families all continue to learn and grow together. We feel blessed to have found in TFLH a welcoming, nurturing and healthful environment where there is genuine concern for the needs of the children.” – Michael Cherney (US), father of Autumn (age 5)
