Want to know what’s priceless? Our daughter is about as secure as a kid can get – it’s a direct result of being in a small-world setting so richly preparing her for the larger world. I pay for the education, but I don’t see how I can ever pay enough for this. This is simply a blessing. - R. Jackson
My two daughters attended MCHD. One from 2nd through 5th, and the other from preschool through 5th. All I can say is that they learned so much at MCHD, and much of it beyond academics. They are both extremely self-motivated and self-organized, intent and enjoying a lifetime of learning because they love it. Both are high academic achievers, but more notably they are incredibly socially adept. They are caring loving citizens of this world and MCHD had a big role in their development. We were so fortunate to have found this wonderful school. - D. Bynum
Our daughter just started her 4th year at MCHD, and we couldn't be more pleased. The amazing teachers at MCHD create an inclusive and safe environment where children can explore their world, develop a love of learning and contribute to a culture of mutual respect. - K. L. Forell
MCHD has been an absolutely amazing fit for my son (now 5) and my daughter (now 3). We couldn’t have been happier. The Toddler and Early Childhood programs are great, the children thrive in this environment, and the teachers are amazing. The sense of community is wonderful, we’ve made friends for life. It is a great joy to watch our children grow up in this school. - T. Monteiro

We offer a strong foundation for the cognitive, social, and emotional development of each individual child as well as developing a strong sense of their citizenship in both the local and the global community. We are committed to enriching our children’s learning experiences through the guidance of expert teachers and a diverse curriculum. Cultivating respect, resilience, perseverance, and a sense of responsibility are our hallmarks.
To accomplish this, MCHD implements the classical Montessori principles: the development of concentration, order, and coordination, which foster the discipline required for independence. These skills enable the child’s freedom of inquiry, while multi-age classrooms promote individualized education. Confidence and enthusiasm is gained from the ability to self-initiate and from success.
These principles provide the framework for every level of our work — the layout of the classroom, the design of the curriculum, the modeling of each activity, and the intention of each lesson with the individual child.
In addition to our outstanding teaching staff, our programs are also set apart by a dedication to Montessori’s foundation in respect for the child. At MCHD, we respect the child’s innate desire to learn and inborn power to be competent.
