Set on four acres of scenic, park-like grounds, OakHaven Montessori School provides children a refreshing alternative to traditional and popular childhood education.  It is a peaceful and nurturing place where children love to learn.  We are conveniently located in the O’Fallon/Dardenne Prairie area and serve families living in all areas of St. Charles county including Lake St. Louis, St. Peters and Wentzville.

The building that houses our Primary School (for pre-school and kindergarten aged children) is tucked in the back of our campus, invisible from the bustle of Highway N.  This beautiful building, with all hardwood floors and bathed in natural light, provides the ideal setting for children to envelope themselves in the joy of exploring and learning.

 

OakHavenImages3The Elementary School (for children in grades 1-6) building is often mistaken for an elegant house, probably because that is what it used to be.  This magnificent structure is the ideal setting in which elementary aged children thrive.  While the larger rooms afford the opportunity to do big group activities and to spread out large pieces of work, the smaller rooms provide the peace and quiet in which a student can read or research or simply sit and ponder some mystery of the universe.  The solarium is a favorite room in which to cluster around a science experiment or curl up in a recliner with a book with the sunlight filling every surrounding crevice.  The combination of beautiful hardwood floors and carpeting help make the environment truly the Children’s Home that DSC_0112Maria Montessori encouraged us to create.  The full array of exciting Montessori elementary materials are punctuated with the children’s work, creating a breathtaking environment of learning.

 

The outdoor environment offers grass under their toes and trees over their heads.  This 1.5 acres of enclosed playground provide an extension to the classrooms as the children tend to their organic gardens, collect nuts from the dozens of oak, hickory and walnut trees, or observe the bluebirds who come to nest each year in the bird boxes.   The playground equipment and the gazebo in which the children delight in creating shows for each other make outdoor time fun for the body, spirit, and mind of each child. Come visit our beautiful campus and experience for yourself the magnificent learning environment OakHaven has to offer your child.
