Childpeace Montessori School serves children from 14 months through middle school in the heart of Portland. Childpeace offers a full Montessori experience that helps children prepare themselves for life as well as for their future school experiences.
Our NW Portland campus includes a 40,000-square-foot main building, a playground, a green space and garden, and an 8,000-square-foot middle school building. We also offer one Children’s House classroom at our satellite location in SE Portland.
The Toddler Community at Childpeace is a nurturing Montessori environment where children learn to do it for themselves, through important individual and cooperative work allowing them to gain physical independence, coordination and a sense of community.
The Children’s House at Childpeace is a vibrant community of 3 to 6 year old children working together and learning from each other. These children are simply able to absorb information and learn through curiosity, exploration, independence and responsibility.
The elementary program at Childpeace is built on the foundations of the Children’s House and fosters the ongoing development of the child through social interactions with the community. Here the child begins to make discoveries in language, math and science and is only limited by the imagination.
The adolescent program at Childpeace is the culmination of the child’s experience as a Montessori student and is built on the foundations of the elementary. In the middle school at Childpeace, young adolescents develop higher-level cognitive skills, care deeply about social and environmental justice, and embrace active citizenship.
