About the Provider

Description: We are a community committed to helping each of our children and families realize the full benefit of a complete Montessori experience that meets the needs of the whole child. We recognize that a partnership between school and home is a critical part of the successful development of our children. The school is affectionately referred to as Hippo House by staff and families. The Hippo House is an AMI Accredited Montessori school in Arlington, VA serving today's preschoolers. We have two classes in two adjacent houses that share a common driveway and playground. Each class has 28 students (of mixed ages), one teacher and one assistant. Both teachers hold Association Montessori International (AMI) certification. Our program is a three-year program: two years of pre-school and kindergarten. We expect new families to enroll with intention of keeping their child in the school for three years--through kindergarten. This third year is the culmination of the primary level Montessori experience where children reap the benefits of the past two years, facilitating entry into a new school with a high degree of self-confidence, independence and enthusiasm for learning.
