Letter from the Director

Welcome to Montessori Children’s House of the West Coast (MCH). Step into our classrooms
you will find a special place where parents, teachers, and staff work together to provide a safe, vibrant, and harmonious environment in which children learn and grow.

MCH provides an enriching learning community for children and a warm, welcoming space for parents. Families who visit the school often feel this sense of inclusion and we take great pride in these qualities.

Our school’s philosophy is founded on the educational principles developed by Maria Montessori. The Montessori method is based on a deep respect for children’s spontaneous desire to learn and celebrates each child’s inherent talents and unique personality. We create environments that foster independence, creativity, and a lifelong love of learning in our children. 

We encourage you to browse our website for more information. If you would like to learn more about the school or schedule a tour, please feel free to contact us at 415-922-9235.

Whoever touches the life of the child touches the most sensitive point of a 

    whole which has roots in the most distant past and climbs toward the infinite future.
