ToTH Montessori, founded as Toddlers on the Hill in 2012, is an innovative, award-winning, OSSE-licensed independent school for children between the ages of 18 months and 6 years of age. Our Toddler and Primary communities embrace the methodology and curriculum developed by Dr. Maria Montessori.
Since its inception, ToTH Montessori continues to adapt to meet the needs of our growing Capitol Hill community. We offer world class materials, a unique and balanced year-round school calendar, foreign language in each classroom, parent education, and a close knit and supportive community. We accept OSSE vouchers, and offer significant tuition assistance each year through funds raised by our staff and parents. We are committed to offering our parent community a neighborhood school that is right for D.C., while never losing sight of how best to satisfy the children’s needs: a prepared environment, highly-trained guides, routine and structure, a mixed-age group, and above all, peaceful uninterrupted work periods that foster concentration and bring joy to each child. Our school is located in the secure first floor childcare suite of the Capper Community Center, completed in 2017 in the Navy Yard/Capitol Riverfront section of Capitol Hill, in Washington, DC.
