The Montessori Children’s House of Denver (MCHD) provides a Montessori education for children 12 months old through middle school. MCHD was established in 1991 and is accredited by the American Montessori Society, and the National Association for the Education of Young Children and validated by the Colorado Montessori Association.

MCHD was founded in 1991 by Gina Abegg and Rachel Averch. This pair of dedicated Montessori educators were committed to creating an excellent Montessori school that reflected their core beliefs about the strength and beauty of Montessori education. Since then, MCHD has grown steadily, now with three campuses in the heart of Denver located in three Denver-area neighborhoods: Mayfair, Park Hill and Stapleton.

At the Montessori Children’s House of Denver, our mission is to challenge, nurture, inspire and support each child’s individual growth and development within an effective, safe, enriched, beautiful and welcoming learning community that embodies the Montessori principles of respect for self, respect for others and respect for the environment.

MOA ARCHITECTURE is comprised of a team of accomplished and experienced architects, interior designers, management, marketing and administrative staff with talent, expertise, and experience to deliver the promise and value of great architecture.

Established in 1981 by principal’s Robert Outland and Kiyoshi Murata, the expectation for great architectural design and quality technical execution was set for future generations to come. We continue this legacy by further advancing our capabilities, expertise and reach by providing full range of planning and design services through our Denver, Colorado and Casper/Laramie Wyoming locations.

Now in our fourth decade, MOA continues to earn the trust and loyalty of our clients, business associates, and the community. Over 70% of all our projects spanning 36 years in business are from repeat clients or referrals from existing clients. Our clients know they can trust and count on MOA to deliver time and time again.

Hello Montessori directors, administrators, and staff! At Early Learning Ventures (ELV), we are excited to be a part of the dialogue at your conference this year. ELV is a local Colorado non-profit specializing in the business administration side of early childhood education. We help our providers through the use of a child management system, CORE, which can handle billing, attendance, online enrollment, tracking of staff hours, file storage, and many other helpful functions in order to save you time, all while being licensing-, CCCAP-, and CACFP-compliant. Also, thanks to our non-profit status and relationship with Colorado licensing, we are able to supplement our providers through a one-stop shop resource platform and access to programs such as HOPP (Healthy Options for Preschoolers and Parents) that you’ll only find with us.

                One of the reasons why we’re so excited to be a part of this dialogue is because we love working with Montessori schools and consider them among our champion providers. Currently, we are working with the Montessori Academy of Colorado (MAC), Montessori School at Lone Tree, Mt. Sopris Montessori, Monument View Montessori Charter School, Breckenridge Montessori, Gateway Montessori, and the Renaissance Montessori Academy. And we’d love to work with you!

                To learn more about our services and hear some of the awesome ways we’re impacting your communities contact our sales manager, Francisco Chavez, at 303-818-4005 or email us at sales@earlylearningventures.org. Simply by mentioning this newsletter, new providers will get their first full month of CORE free!
