Call to Action: Let’s Make Community, One Conversation at a Time
You know it when you see it.

The Childpeace Board of Trustees is thrilled to introduce our new Chair, T.J. McHugh. T.J. joined the Board three years ago, bringing extensive knowledge of communications, strategic planning, marketing, and brand building honed over 20 years as a global director for large brands.
This summer, I had the opportunity to attend a professional conference in person. It was my first such event in two and a half years. The days spent with nearly 150 other school administrators were inspiring and reinvigorating. The conversations were rich, the engagement was deep, and spirits were high. Repeatedly, discussions re-focused on the student experience. In all we do, we think about our support of children’s development. At Childpeace, our interpersonal connections are powerful and centering. The faculty and staff strive to be well-prepared to be present, responsive, and of service to children and families.

The lower elementary program at Childpeace is built on the foundations of the Children’s House and fosters the ongoing development of the child through social interactions with the community.
The upper elementary program at Childpeace is where the child begins to make discoveries in language, math and science and is only limited by the imagination.
The adolescent program at Childpeace is the culmination of the child’s experience as a Montessori student and is built on the foundations of the elementary.
