Tell Me More About Butterfly House

Eco-friendly

It is our duty to care for this earth that we call home! We use only eco-friendly and child-safe cleaning products. Within the classroom we teach love and respect for all creatures of the earth. 

Hands-on Materials

Montessori materials are made with beauty and purpose. These materials are designed to help children learn through touching, exploring and experimenting. Our students are learning through sensorial input long before they put pen to paper. 

Trained Teachers

Our teachers are trained in the Montessori pedagogy. We are proud to offer the community an authentic Montessori environment! A safe place for children to grow and learn through respect and within limits.

Rainboots Required

We play outside in all kinds of weather! Please dress your child in clothes that they can freely explore the mud puddles in. As they say in Norway "there's no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing."
