The MCHS Butterfly Gardens
During the fall of 2019, Montessori Children’s House and School earned the prized distinction as a Certified Butterfly Habitat from Texas Discovery Gardens. This means the MCHS Butterfly Gardens contain the right balance of plants, attracting a variety of butterfly species that not only support and sustain butterflies as pollinators, but also provide a caterpillar a place to eat well, form into a chrysalis and transform.
As a part of the primary Montessori curriculum, children become aware of a number of natural life cycles, including the life of a butterfly. The MCHS Butterfly Gardens provide our children the hands-on experience to see this spectacular, natural wonder
We are proud to join in the efforts of other local certified butterfly habitats, all of which are working towards protecting and sustaining these tiny but mighty pollinators.
