Our home in Valley Forge Park is new, our House has been educating
and nurturing children since 1963. A non-profit corporation
and parent run preschool, MCHVF, is affiliated with the American
Montessori Society (AMS), is licensed by the Commonwealth of
Pennsylvania, State Board of Private Academic Schools, and by the
Department of Public Welfare. MCHVF is honored to be one of
the few schools and the first Montessori school located in a U.S.
National Park, and takes full advantage of its exceptional
surroundings.In February 2010, we completed our historically
recognized and award winning multi-million dollar renovation and
expansion of the former Ivy Hollow Farm (David Walker Farmstead).
Located on 3.5 acres within Valley Forge Park, the new
purpose built preschool houses six classrooms, a large
multi-purpose room for gym and art, a meeting room dedicated for
parents, and a room specifically for our Parent and Toddler
classes. In addition, there are two age appropriate playgrounds and
an athletic field. An outdoor classroom has just been
completed.MCHVF is a parent run school, the Board of Directors,
consisting of parents, alumni parents and grandparents, together
with the Administrator, establish school policy. Parents are
invited to participate and volunteer in a variety of ways.
From sharing their talents and experiences with the classes
to providing daily snacks and planning special events, our parents
are a welcomed and integral addition to our House community.
