Montessori Children's House is Madison, WI's oldest Montessori school.
MCH is a non-profit, parent operated school dedicated to providing high quality programs for children 2 to 9 years of age.
Our educational philosophy is rooted in the teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori who found that children possess a great love of learning and an eagerness to explore their environment.
By working with a child's inclination toward discovery, a learning environment can be created which fosters independence, self discipline and motivation.
Freedom and security in the classroom ensures that children learn at their own pace.
