Children’s House


“Our son is absolutely flourishing at Thacher— intellectually, emotionally and socially, and his self confidence and resourcefulness grow with each day he spends at school.”
Children’s House Parent

From learning to tie shoes to choosing work, Children’s House students are respected as individuals and encouraged to be active participants in the classroom. For these children, aged three to six, learning is a dynamic and joyful process.
Our three-year Children’s House program offers hands-on experience in practical life, sensorial activities, language, Spanish, science, math, music and movement, and cultural studies. Each classroom has immediate access to the outdoor environment for gardening, nature study, picnics, and playtime.
Respecting others with grace and courtesy is the foundation for social and personal interaction throughout the Thacher School, as modeled by our guides. Children’s House students in particular learn to wait; politely interrupt; respect themselves and others; respect others’ work spaces; and use “indoor” voices in the classroom, proper table manners, and playground etiquette.
