Introducing Montessori Pre-K
St. Mary’s Pre-school is going “STREAM” with the introduction of the Montessori program in School Year 2015-2016! By presenting the Montessori method of education to our pre-school children in this coming year, as an important stepping stone into a full STREAM program throughout the entire school! An Information Session will be held on Thursday, February 26 at 7 p.m. in the Parish Center which will provide an overview of the program and a demo lesson. Montessori prepares students in initiative, focus, independence and accountability for easy transition into a more traditional setting. Our traditional K – 8 setting is also changing with the STREAM initiative, to facilitate more hands-on learning, which is the cornerstone of the Montessori curriculum. Programs for 3,4 and 5 year olds, including kindergarten readiness. Registration is currently being accepted by calling 689-8424.
