Nurture AND Nature; developing your child's individual passions and strengths.
Because today's child is tomorrow's future.
MCH is committed to an excellent holistic Montessori education that includes the partnership and involvement of families within our community.
Our beautiful five acre campus is surrounded by protected wetlands and forested areas and is home to several farm animals (goats, chickens, rabbits, ducks and more.) This farm-like peaceful setting connects MCH students to their natural world through the exploration of nature, earth science, gardening, farming and environmental education.
With a fully-enclosed Nature Trail, built-in enrichment programs, yearly original play production, outdoor-focused after school clubs and more, MCH is a Montessori certified school for children six weeks old to sixth grade.
With a Montessori middle school program (grades 7 and 8) scheduled to open in September 2019, MCH is an open-growth environment, uniquely serving the education needs for children of all backgrounds.
