BMCH was founded in 2019 by a group of parents who joined together to ensure that children in the Prince George’s County community have access to a high-quality, affordable, and results-oriented Montessori education.

A commitment to children and their education is our driving force. All children need and crave the opportunity to learn and demonstrate what they know. We strive to ensure that we afford all children that opportunity.

Families are key to our community! BMCH is a parent-led co-operative.

The parent community:
  • discusses and votes on major co-op decisions at regular co-op meetings
  • elects members to the Board of Directors
  • volunteers on committees to help with co-op functions
  • engages with children’s learning through service in and out of the classroom

All parents are required to:

  1. Support and understand the Montessori philosophy
  2. Register the child as a homeschool student in Prince George’s County, MD – and supervise instruction of the child to ensure thorough regular instruction in the State of Maryland required subjects
  3. Keep current with all communications from BMCH
  4. Establish a good working relationship with the child’s instructors
  5. Attend parent meetings and conferences with instructors
  6. Meet financial obligations, including supplying periodic designated snacks
  7. Meet all financial obligations in a timely manner

The education of the student is partnership between the parents and BMCH!

Our Board of Directors is elected by parent co-op community each summer, and manages the “business” of the co-op. This includes the strategic visioning, and decisions about staffing, curriculum, funding, and more. The officers of the Board include:

  • Jo Anna Capp, President
  • Samba Wurie, Treasurer
  • Kristin Wurie, Education Director
  • Nicole Drummond, Operations Director
  • Margo Street, Admissions Director

Committees keep the co-op running and include Governance, Marketing, Fundraising, Curriculum, Special Events and more. Details coming soon…
