Howe Montessori and Center Based Education

Montessori Preschool Admissions

The Dearborn Montessori Preschool is an academic program for 3 and 4 year old children that educates the whole child; socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually. The Montessori method uses a “prepared environment”. Its structure involves many materials used independently. The teacher acts as a facilitator, the child as the active learner. This is the core of Montessori’s educational philosophy.
