Just as each child is unique, each school has aspects that make it distinctive.
For 50 years, Montessori Children`s House and School has been dedicated to providing quality Montessori education to children aged three to six years.
Respect for each child`s individuality is integral to the Montessori approach, and every student is allowed to progress at his or her own rate.
Although there is an emphasis on individual growth and personal responsibility, there is an equal emphasis on respect for others and fostering compassion and social development.

We have had two daughters go through MCHS; oldest now 9 and middle 7. Both loved the experience and were able to gain experiences and foster relationships they still have to this day. Our youngest 3 just began her MCHS journey and we could not be more excited. The students, families, and staff are so loving and understanding and we could not be happier than to be a part of MCHS and look forward to another great Montessori experience.

We spent almost 8 years at this amazing school. As a Montessori child and student, we were focused on an outstanding Montessori education for our children. MCHS could not have been a more perfect community and school. As an AMI-certified school, it met our minimum standards, but the guides, facilities, and community as a whole made it our home. MCHS not only taught our children the academics they needed (and more - including the most beautiful cursive!) but supported them to grow into independent, critical thinkers who enjoy learning and value community and are able to act as leaders.

My son was at MCHS from age 4 to age 6 and thrived. He was more than ready for first grade at Lamplighter when he graduated. The guides are all wonderful and the building and grounds are beautiful. For all that you and your child get, the tuition and before/after care are a bargain. Highly recommend.
