As a DPW/PDE-licensed, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, Montessori Children’s House is an exceptional curator of your tuition dollars. To help limit tuition increases, we constantly search for grants to support our operations in all areas, including our facilities (indoor classrooms as well as outdoor playground and play spaces), classroom materials, teacher education and retention.
Montessori Children’s House is also dedicated to providing financial assistance to families in need through the Children’s Scholarship Fund. Covering a portion of tuition, the Children’s Scholarship Fund is supported by Montessori Children’s House, the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit, matching contributions from the United Way, corporate donations, annual family events and family donations. To date, we have raised more than $875,000 and have assisted over 2,100 children.
