St. Mary’s Launches Montessori Pre-K
Teresa Rice has been named Montessori-trained lead teacher working with three to six-year-olds at the new St. Mary’s Montessori preschool. St. Mary’s is the first Catholic elementary school to offer Montessori instruction in the Northtowns for children ages three through six. Instruction begins in September of 2015. Montessori prepares students in initiative, focus, independence, and accountability to strengthen their successful transition to the traditional St. Mary’s STREAM curriculum at the K-8 level and their journey into teenage and adult years. Call 689-8424 to register.
“I have seen firsthand the importance of the three year cycle of Montessori education, and have experienced the satisfaction of guiding children emotionally, cognitively, and spiritually through those years,” Rice said.
