Because tuition alone does not cover the many expenses of running a school, and because we are committed to accommodating as many families as possible through our tuition assistance program, the Children’s House Montessori School depends on contributions from our families, alumni and friends to our annual fund and other fundraising events.

There are many ways, large or small, of contributing to the school in support of our mission.

Children’s House Montessori School Annual Fund

Our Annual Fund provides the foundation of our fundraising efforts. “Each one of us, parents, past parents, grandparents, alumni, and friends: we are threads in the fabric of the Children’s House community and we share something special and something irreplaceable. The Children’s House is small, warm, welcoming and fragile. It needs your support through volunteering and it needs your support through financial contributions.” –Lynne Kaplinsky Brown, Chair, CHMS Board of Directors To contribute to our annual fund, you can click on the “Donate” button on this page.

Annual Spring Auction

The auction is our single biggest fundraising event of the year. This year, we are holding our second Kentucky Derby Party and Auction Saturday, May 5 at the beautiful Cellar Door Winery in Lincolnville. Please join us for a fabulous evening of Derby fun with outrageous hats, delicious food, and exciting auction items to bid on.

CedarWorks Playset Raffle

Every year, CedarWorks, maker of beautiful indoor and outdoor playsets and children’s furniture donates a playset or other merchandise for our raffle. This year’s drawing will be held in June.

Hannaford Gift Card Program

Do you buy groceries at Hannaford? If so, you can contribute to Children’s House, and it won’t cost you a dime. When you buy Hannaford Gift Cards through Children’s House, 5% of every dollar you spend comes back to the school. Please call Kathy, 236-2911 for more information.

The Children’s House Montessori School is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and all donations are tax-deductible. Thank you for your support.
