Welcoming Infants — Our Youngest Students
Our youngest students are nurtured and cared for in our homelike setting and have opportunities to explore our beautiful campus. Gentle and loving care fosters learning and growth. As members of our school community, they benefit from developmentally appropriate materials and activities in our warm, peaceful environment.

“Amazing and Affordable.”
With one step through Welsh Hills School’s door, parents can picture their child in the homelike setting: vibrant with sounds of discovery, accomplishment, and pride.

In the past, our tuition closed that door to many. Our tuition is now family-friendly so that more children can experience an education focused on the whole child. Check out our new tuition rates.

Designed to fit your family’s needs!
• School-year, year-round, morning, and full-day preschool programs offered with 2, 3 and 5-day options
• Before and after care
• 11-acre play area, greenhouse, organic gardens and nut/peanut-free facility

For students in Children’s House and our elementary and middle school programs, we have extended care options to suit every schedule, whether you need care in the morning, the afternoon, every day, some days, holidays or your child just wants to ‘Stay & Play.’ We have an option that fits every one’s schedule!

Developing the Whole Child
Rooted in the Montessori tradition, Welsh Hills School excels in age-appropriate learning which focuses on the intellectual, social, emotional, ethical and physical development of infants through students in eighth grade. Curiosity is rewarded, learning is inspired, and expectations are exceeded. Students develop their passion for learning and a sense of independence and confidence. We encourage our students to be real-life learners through thoughtful risk-taking as an important portal to discovery.
