Montessori Center hosts open house Nov. 8

HEIGHTS – The public is invited to attend a school-wide open house from 1 to 3 p.m. Nov. 8 at Dearborn Heights Montessori Center, 466 N. John Daly.

As an independent non-profit educational community, DHMC offers an individualized learning experience, enabling each child from pre-school through eighth grade to reach his or her potential. Respect for children, a strong commitment to non-violence and a deep belief in the value of education are all principles upon which the school functions.

Teachers and staff will be available at the open house to give tours and answer questions. Children are welcome and light refreshments will be served.

“This is an excellent opportunity for parents and families unfamiliar with Montessori to learn about our programs,” said Kay Neff, the school’s founder. “We help foster children’s love of learning in a very nurturing and caring environment.”

In addition to pre-school, kindergarten, elementary and middle school programs, DHMC provides before and after school day care. The school also offers a theme-based summer program that includes daily math and language, art, physical education and technology, and lots of arts and crafts, picnics, outdoor time, music, stories, games and field trips.

For additional information about the open house and programs available at DHMC, call (313) 359-3000 or go to
