The Children's House Montessori
Welcome to The Children’s House Montessori LaSalle, proudly owned and operated by BrightPath Early Learning & Child Care. TCH LaSalle is located in the heart of LaSalle, close to shopping areas and local businesses. It offers Infant, Toddler and Casa programs for children 6 weeks to 6 years of age with Before and After School programs for children up to 12 years of age. We offer secured entry with proxy key access and age specific outdoor learning environments with shaded areas. Yoga, Music and Mandarin classes are also offered for all age groups. We are open 6:30 am-6:30 pm all year round (excluding civic and statutory holidays). We take pride in being your child’s home away from home.
At TCH LaSalle, we assist the children through the adventure of learning independently and provide assistance only when needed. “Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed” – Maria Montessori. When starting in our Bambini program we will provide the children with simple self-help skills such as self-soothing, independent feeding, fine and gross motor, all while ensuring they receive love and affection from their care providers. As the children enter into our Toddler program we encourage and help them learn the work cycle, and how to complete a task. We also introduce the concept of shapes, sizes, colours and continue to help them learn independently. While in our Casa program, our children begin the process of writing, reading and mathematical discovery. We provide them with the same five areas of the classroom you will see in our Toddler program: math, language, cultural, sensorial and practical life with an open-ended art shelf available during the day.
We offer all of our families the option of receiving a daily email report through BrightPath Connect which includes updates on meals, snacks, sleep, toileting, activities and learning. This can also be added as an app to your smartphone for your convenience.
The high quality of child care and education my children have received is second to none. It is always difficult to leave your children in someone else’s care; but the staff at LaSalle Montessori makes this so much easier. The teaching staff is amazing; they encourage learning, they nurture curiosity, and they care for the children as if they are their own. The program at LaSalle Montessori has provided my children with a firm foundation for future academic success. Overall, LaSalle Montessori provides a great atmosphere for our children; where they feel safe, secure, and loved.
