Children’s House

Ages 3 to 6, Half-Day or All Day Program

Home to our youngest learners, Children’s House helps students categorize and make sense of the world around them. Spacious classrooms feature areas dedicated to developing skills in reading, writing, math, science and geography. Everything has a purpose: all of the materials selected help children develop a foundation for future learning and growth.

When you visit, you’ll hear the phrase “grace and courtesy.” This is more than manners: it’s all of the activities that facilitate successful social and life skills. Through grace and courtesy, Children’s House creates an environment where helping, caring and responsibility develop naturally and appropriately.





As soon as you walk in the door, it feels like home…like a family.


Our program includes art as well as specialists who teach Spanish, music and physical education. At a critical time in their development growth, the Children's House focuses on the whole child.

Clubs Program
Mid-Day Clubs

Mid-Day Clubs are offered to Children’s House students (ages 3 to 5) beginning at 11:30 a.m., the end of their academic morning. They include sports, cooking, ballet, drama and more.

After-School Clubs

Students aged 6 to 12 can stay after school with their friends and participate in a variety of clubs from 3:15 to 6:00 p.m.

Clubs are taught by members of our staff as well as community members, educational institutions and local businesses, such as the Akron Zoo, Asian Sun, Jump Start Sports and Great Lakes Science Center. Students often discover a new passion or develop skills and talents in new areas.

There are multiple sessions during the academic year, with new and exciting age-appropriate options each time. Private lessons in piano, violin, viola, brass, and woodwind instruments are also available through our HMS Conservatory of Music.

Summer Program

Summertime is a time for children to explore, create and discover at Hudson Montessori School. Our programs are staffed by talented and dedicated camp counselors, most of whom are HMS faculty, staff or alumni. In our Enrichment Camps, you can pick individual sessions to explore new possibilities and broaden your child’s horizons. In Create-Your-Day, you can design your daily or weekly schedule with as much flexibility and creativity as you need. We also offer Activity and Movement Camps that help build athletic and physical skills in a fun and supportive environment.
