The Northeast Iowa Montessori School (NEIM) Children’s House invites members of the Decorah community to an open house on Saturday, May 22nd, 2010 from 9am to 12pm, to celebrate its new location at 418 Water Street. NEIM’s teachers and board members will be on hand to provide demonstrations of classroom materials, answer questions, and share why Montessori schools may be one of the best-kept secrets in education.
Children’s House serves 3 to 6 year olds and follows the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori, an Italian physician and anthropologist who gave the world a scientific method, practical and tested, for bringing forth the very best in young human beings. A rich and extensive curriculum implemented with hands-on materials fosters independence, critical thinking, respect and responsibility to self, to others and to the global environment.
NEIM’s new location (the former Christian Camera building) is centrally located and will allow NEIM to take advantage of Decorah’s many resources and play a larger role in the community.
NEIM is currently accepting applications for the fall. Those interested in more information may call the office at 563-382-6491 or visit us at our open house on Saturday May 22nd.
