Perth Children's House (PCH) is a Montessori method based Casa program serving children ages 31 months to 6 years. The three year program is meant to instill a love of learning, self-confidence and greater understanding in literacy, mathematics and the world at large. Children may start once they have reached the age of 31 months. However, they must start the program prior to the year of their 4th birthday, unless they are joining from another Montessori school.
Perth Children’s House Montessori School (PCH) was formed in 1974 by a dedicated group of parents in the Perth Area who decided that their children, and their community, needed another option for early education. PCH continues to be a parent-run organization where parents enjoy taking an active role in the school.
