Reviews on Hulafrog

“They build trusting and warm relationships with the children, helping the children in turn to build confidence, develop skills and interests, and truly establishing a community.”

“The classrooms are beautiful, dynamic, and engaging spaces where the kids explore their lessons with enthusiasm.”

“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.”

Reviews on Great Schools

“We discovered MCHD when we relocated to the area, and were looking for Montessori programs. I was immediately impressed with warm, supportive environment and the fantastic teachers.”

“When my wife and I made the decision to move to Durham, we took the opportunity to observe and evaluate a number of local schools, both public and private, in an attempt to find the best fit for our twins. The Montessori Children’s House of Durham stood head and shoulders above the rest of them, not because it tried to impress with flashy facilities, but because of the profound respect it demonstrated for the unique potential of every child within its classrooms.”

“My daughter is rising to 8th grade in public school after attending MCHD through 6th grade… MCHD taught my child conflict resolution, flexibility, creative thinking, writing skills, advanced literacy, intrinsic motivation, and community awareness.  In the top 5% of her class,  she was awarded by NC for being among the highest SAT scores in the state [as part of Duke’s TIP program]. Our early investment was totally worth it, and then some.”
