In 1984, our founder, Pat Lacoste, opened Kinder Haus Montessori School in Metairie, with the vision of providing the highest quality care for young children. Now, as we begin our 40th school year, we celebrate the joys that Montessori has brought to thousands of children who have passed through our doors. We truly believe that Montessori is a gift for life.
We fully embrace the Montessori philosophy of education, allowing children to experience its lifelong benefits. The teaching method’s focus on work that helps develop a child’s ability to concentrate, be self-motivated, self-directed, self-confident, and independent. Children learn to care for their own needs by helping with snack time and taking care of the environment. This fosters their natural desire to be independent and self-confident, which they take pride in.
Children are encouraged to explore their environment and have the freedom to make choices. It’s also stimulating and child-oriented, a place where they can learn and explore without fear. Freedom within a structured environment helps develop a sense of order and purpose, which increases critical thinking skills, decision-making, understanding of natural consequences, and encourages creativity
. Kinder Haus introduces each child to academic foundations in Math, Science, Language, and Geography. Teachers give individual lessons to support the children socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually.
 Children who come through our doors leave with compassion, independence, self-esteem, concentration, and a love for learning. We invite anyone eager to brighten their world to come visit.
