Welcome to the Montessori Children's House of Nantucket

Founded by Lucille Jordan in 1982, the Montessori Children's House of Nantucket is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, a MA Department of Early Education and Care licensed program and the island's only Montessori school!

Our mission is to create an environment that inspires children to develop inner discipline, self-assurance and a love of learning.  We seek to balance academic and social development to foster responsibility and cooperation within a supportive learning environment.

As a three year program, with children starting as early as 2 years 9 months, students and families have an opportunity to become a part of a close-knit, supportive school community.  Established over 30 years ago, MCHN now proudly has both staff and parents who are alumni of the program themselves!
