Little Forest Hills Montessori | Little Forest Hills Child Care
The Liberated Montessori House is a Licensed home-based toddler community designed for children 18 months to four years old. Positioned in the heart of Little Forest Hills (one of the most unique and friendly neighborhoods in East Dallas) you can find us pouring, transferring, and flower arranging in a quirky little cottage surrounded by great trees and bamboo.
What makes the Liberated Montessori House unique?
Small Student to Caregiver Ratio
There will be no more than six students in my care, which allows me to quickly focus on responding to your child's individual needs.
Focus on Health and Nutrition
All meals & snacks are provided and are natural, healthy and homemade. Meats are grass-fed and hormone-free. All fruits and vegetables are organic.
Positive and Gentle Discipline
I follow the "golden rule" of Attachment Parenting and always treat children the way I would like to be treated. I believe positive discipline is a key factor in forming secure and trusting relationships.
Focus on the Montessori Method
All lessons adhere closely to Maria Montessori's teachings, which allows students the freedom to explore within a controlled environment. The classroom has been meticulously prepared with the child's potential in mind.

As the directress and primary caregiver, my principal goal is to create a calm, loving and peaceful environment for my students, one that is conducive to not just learning but exploring and growing as a whole person. I believe the most important and sensitive period in a child’s development is the first six years of his or her life. My mission is to guide the child during this significant time, allowing them the freedom to experience the joys of discovering the world around them, all while in a safe and secure environment.
I am very excited to begin my Montessori training in the Spring. I have four years of experience (two as an Assistant teacher and two as a Lead teacher) in an AMS affiliated Montessori school, as well as over ten years of experience working with children outside of the Montessori field. I am also a mother to a beautiful and curious little girl named Matilda.
I have a background check on file with the state of Texas and I am certified in Infant, Child and Adult CPR and First Aid.
“Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.” – Maria Montessori
The Liberated Montessori House’s holistic toddler program was created in response to Dr. Maria Montessori's observations that the most important period in a human being's development is the first six years of life. Our commitment to these vital years is apparent in this specialized program designed to serve the needs of the toddler.
Our program focuses heavily on independent exploration. We gently guide the child, helping them to build sensory, language and motor skills. We also employ positive discipline techniques, which aid in the child’s social and emotional growth.
Child-led learning allows the child to experience, first hand, the joys of discovering the world.
The Toddler Program provides:
Year-round care anytime between 7:00 am and 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday
