Petoskey Montessori Children's House is a Non-profit 501(c)3 organization that has been in operation since 1973.  PMCH relies heavily on fundraising, donations, and grants.  The school is in need of many items that are above and beyond what our budget allows. If you are interested in donating to PMCH please contact the school. 


Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is critical to maintaining the high-quality Montessori programming that Petoskey Montessori Children's House (PMCH) offers to our community.

PMCH is a school where children develop strong character, leadership skills, critical thinking skills, and learn self-direction during the most impressionable and formative years.  Families, grandparents, alumni, and friends of PMCH can choose to support PMCH by making a gift to our Annual Fund.

Your gift is tax deductible and allows us to:

  • • Retain the best-trained professionals who meet the stringent standards set by both AMI and AMS
  • • Provide our classrooms with  Montessori materials
  • • Support professional development for our staff
  • • Provide financial assistance for families in need
  • • Building improvements

Upon receiving your donation a receipt for your tax deductible donation will be mailed.
