Nia House Learning Center

2234 9th St, Berkeley, CA 94710


Nia House is inspired by the pioneering work of Dr. Maria Montessori. Nia is a Swahili word, meaning purpose. The purpose of our "house" (a reference to Dr. Montessori's "Children's House") is to provide a program that meets the needs of all children. We believe that given a properly prepared environment the natural unfolding of the child will occur and their experiences with the world will be enriching and strengthening.

Professionally trained Montessori teachers staff Nia House. The diversity of the staff provides an authentic reflection of the greater community. The harmony and cooperation of this diverse staff is an example to the children of how people of different backgrounds can respect each other and work in harmony.

Currently, Nia House receives funds from the City of Berkeley and parents fees. The City money fluctuates year to year and is targeted for poverty-level families. Nia House also provides scholarships to 37% of our families. Qualifications for scholarships are based on family size and income for those below the state median income. These scholarships enable Nia House to support families who are struggling to economically stabilize their families.
