Preschool ~ Kindergarten ~ Elementary
Where kids learn, play, grow, and thrive!
MCH is currently open with enhanced health screening and safety procedures.

Where kids learn, play, grow, and thrive!

There are many wonderful schools in Virginia Beach. Here are a few reasons why we think MCH is the best choice:

  • Our warm & nurturing environment helps children feel at home

  • Personalized learning: each student has a customized, individual learning plan

  • Multisensory & hands on: our students learn by doing, using specifically designed materials

  • Excellent teacher ratio, with 1:1 and small group (2-3 students) instruction

  • Explicit social & emotional instruction for a happy, harmonious class

  • The Montessori approach creates curious, independent, persistent, successful students!

What is Montessori education?


Montessori is a system of education that was developed in Italy more than 100 years ago, and has become popular throughout the world.


It relies on hands-on learning and positive reinforcement to encourage and promote children's natural curiosity about their world. 

Montessori methods have been confirmed by modern research on educational outcomes. The results are in: Montessori kids thrive!
