When you give to our Bright Futures Fund, you are investing in:

Children - building within them the skills, grace, courage, resiliency, humanity, and a sense of responsibility to create healthy and peaceful futures for themselves and their communities. 

Teachers - supporting their Montessori practice with professional development opportunities. Our guides are highly trained and prepare a classroom that supports and inspires children to love to learn - they are the dynamic link between the materials and the child’s learning experience. To get to know our guides, watch this video

Our future - sustaining The Children’s House to ensure that it will provide an exceptional learning environment for our students today and for years to come - no matter what challenges we may face.

To make a pledge, please describe your ideal payment plan for your gift in the comments section of this form. Thank you.
