Founded in 1976, MCHD became the first school in North Carolina to be Accredited by the American Montessori Society, in 1996.
Montessori Children's House of Durham (MCHD) lays foundations for intellectual, moral, emotional, physical, social, and spiritual competence in our students. We shape young people who have a sense of the grand order of the universe, who can assume their rights and responsibilities, find joy in learning, and who delight among the peoples and in the places where they live.
Teachers guide children to:
learn to make decisions in their practical lives,
explore a myriad of sensory experiences,
savor the power of words,
revel in the elegance of mathematics,
cultivate their unique voice through the arts,
discover continents and cultures in geography,
observe the marvelous wonders of the natural world
and link the past to the present in historical studies.
