Welcoming Children to Learning

The Sheepscot Valley Children’s House, founded in 1983, is a Montessori and private school for children between the ages of twelve months and seven years. Overlooking the Sheepscot River in Wiscasset, Maine, the school greets approximately 50 children from throughout the Midcoast region each year.

We welcome children to learning – about themselves, other people, the arts, nature, the world.  We emphasize respect for oneself and others and reverence for the human spirit as well as the intellect.  We provide a nurturing, stimulating, and happy environment where children are guided toward the pleasure of learning, sometimes in the company of friends and teachers, sometimes quietly on their own.

The Sheepscot Valley Children’s House is in many ways a family as well as a school.  For many people, the community of parents who share in and care for it becomes an important part of the Sheepscot Valley experience.

If you have a child who would enjoy this unique school, we encourage you to call or email us for more information or to arrange a visit.
