Mission Statement

Nia House Learning Center's mission is to bring together children from different socioeconomic backgrounds to grow and work in harmony and cooperation, and to actively work toward all of Dr. Maria Montessori's concepts, especially that of peace through education.

Description

Nia House is a small, non-profit, Montessori preschool in the heart of West Berkeley. Founded in 1974, our school was the first Montessori program in California to serve low-income children. Our school is inspired by the pioneering work of Dr. Maria Montessori and we are committed to providing children between the ages of 18 months and 6 years with an education centered around peace, understanding, acceptance, independence, community, and truth.

At Nia House, we believe that, given a properly prepared environment (both physical and social), the natural unfolding of the child will occur and his/her experiences with the world will be enriching and strengthening, allowing them to grow into successful adults.

Our toddler program has 12 children (18 months to 3 years old), and the preschool has 33 children (2.9 to 6 years old). Professionally trained Montessori teachers staff Nia House. The diversity of the staff provides an authentic reflection of the greater community. The harmony and cooperation of this diverse staff is an example to the children of how people of different backgrounds can respect each other and work in harmony.
