Willow Oak Montessori Children's House

A Private Preschool-Kindergarten Program Serving Children 2 1/2-6 Years Old

Willow Oak Montessori Children's House is a half-day program that operates from 8am to 12pm Monday through Friday mid-August through mid-June each school year.

At Willow Oak Montessori, we work with families to provide each child with an individual education experience tailored to his/her unique developmental needs.  Our classrooms each serve 19-20 children, with a student-to-teacher ratio of approximately 10:1.  Our students spend time outside most days, and each classroom has an outdoor learning environment that is an extension of the classroom.  Parent participation in the classroom is encouraged once the classroom has "normalized" in the fall.  Parents help out with language lessons, art projects, cooking projects, and in many other ways, depending on their skills, experiences, and interests.

Teachers host formal conferences with parents or guardians twice per year.  Between conferences, our teachers reach out to families on a regular basis to discuss developmental milestones and any concerns that arise in the classroom.

We encourage you to schedule a time to visit our classrooms, as it is difficult to convey in words the special things that happen there.  Please visit the Contact Us page and submit an inquiry form to schedule a school tour/observation or register for an Open House.  


Our Children's House classrooms are located at 886 Hamlets Chapel Rd, Pittsboro, NC 27312. The school's offices are located at 50101 Governors Drive, Suite 170, Chapel Hill, NC 27517.
