REDMOND, WA – Eastside families searching for an alternative to traditional education now have a new option for their middle schooler. For the past 30 years, Montessori Children’s House (MCH, MCHkids.com) has served students from six weeks old up to sixth grade. But in 2019, the school is expanding their offering to be one of the few Montessori middle schools in the Seattle area.
“Families have been asking us to start a middle school program for years,” said MCH Head of School, Jennifer McConnell. “It’s something we’ve thought about but we wanted to have the right people in place.

Over the course of three weeks, Redmond’s Montessori Children’s House (MCH), an American Montessori Society accredited school, collected basic needs supplies for Hopelink, a non-profit that serves families on the Eastside. All MCH students and families participated in the collection drive. Elementary students kept track of donations using hundred-square based tally sheets. Students publicized the drive, organized the collection center, sorted donations, packed boxes, labeled the boxes, loaded the rental truck (donated by Guardwell Storage) and unloaded it at Hopelink’s largest warehouse in Kirkland on Dec. 13.

There’s a natural part of parenting where we want to do everything for our kids; and when I say everything I mean everything. We figure they’re going to have to make their own bed when they go away to college so we might as well do it for them now.
