Children’s House

In the Children’s House, Montessori classes allow students to learn at their own individual pace and according to their own choice of activities from hundreds of possibilities. There is constant interaction, problem-solving, child to child teaching, and socialization.

Children are challenged according to their ability and never bored. Our Montessori environment emphasizes learning through all five senses, not just through listening, watching, or reading. In addition to the individual work time, each day’s lesson includes time for group activities, discussions, music, games, stories, drama, poetry, grace, and courtesy. Learning is an exciting process of discovery, leading to concentration, motivation, self-discipline, and a love of learning.

Flagstaff Junior Academy Children’s House is a multi-age classroom with students ages three through kindergarten. We truly believe this is the best foundation for all future learning. We will work to create a beautiful, safe, and stimulating environment for your children. We will form a community of caring, curious learners…and we’ll have fun! You, as parents, are your child’s first and best teachers. We would like to join you in a partnership to build a strong and memorable experience for your child.

  • CHILDREN’S HOUSE SCHOOL FINANCIAL POLICY

    Please read, agree to and sign this statement BEFORE your child is admitted to any of the privately funded programs we offer.

    1. The COMPLETE registration packet must be submitted before a space can be reserved for your child. We reserve the right to give your space to others until the COMPLETE registration packet is in our hands.

    2. Our annual tuition is developed on the basis of an academic year budget. We have adopted a monthly payment convention because most people cannot afford to pay the annual tuition amount all at once. Each of the monthly payments has been calculated as a fraction of the academic year tuition. You are not paying monthly for that month, but for a fraction of the academic year. We do not refund tuition, therefore, for school holidays, absences, or snow days.

    3. Once registered, your child is enrolled in the school until s/he disenrolls. We do not accept “drop-in” unregistered children in any program. For this reason, we cannot make refunds for absences. Because we operate at or near capacity, neither can we permit you to “make-up” absences by attending at some other time than that for which you originally enrolled.

    4. A $25.00 late fee is added to your account whenever your monthly payment is made beyond the grace period.

    5. Checks returned to us for insufficient funds carry a $25.00 returned check fee.

    6. Persons who make arrangements to pay late or who make arrangements to make smaller than monthly payments must be on time. In cases where these agreements are not kept, late fees may be charged. We regret that we must dis-enroll children whose parents repeatedly delay or fail to make schedule payments.

    7. A finance charge of 1.5% per month will be charged on accounts delinquent over 60 days. The charges will accrue until the full amount due is collected, whether voluntarily or through the intervention of a collection agency or the court system.

    8. We offer a discount for multiple children from the same family who are enrolled in one of our privately funded programs. You will not be granted a discount on private preschool tuition if you have a child in the charter school and a child in the preschool. Also, we cannot afford to grant multiple discounts to the same person. You will be granted whichever single discount is most advantageous to you. Individuals receiving the annual discount will forfeit the discount if they unenroll their child before the academic year ends.

    9. Students whose state required immunizations are not complete will not be enrolled at the school.
