History
The creation of Montessori Hale O Keiki is testimony to the needs and dedication of the community that it serves.  In 1990 a Board of Directors was established and through community support in business consulting, monetary donations, and labor donations, a site was found, purchased and renovated.  MHOK opened as a preschool in September of 1991 with over 50% of the required funds provided by private individuals from the Maui community.  In 1994 MHOK opened a lower elementary school.  In 1998, the school completed the purchase and renovation of a new elementary school building on Kanakanui Road in Kihei, with 49% of the budget met by private donations of money, goods, labor, equipment and discounts.
