The Mount Sacred Heart Montessori Program for children ages 2 1/2-5 has been part of the MSH Catholic elementary school since 1973.
Our Montessori Program offers activities for all aspects of the child’s development. Montessori is a system of education based on each child’s developmental needs for “freedom within limits” in a carefully prepared environment. With its Catholic identity and foundation, the Montessori Program nurtures the spiritual, faithful, and moral stages of each child.
Our Award Winning Montessori Program was established in 1973 and all our teachers are certified and trained according to the Montessori Philosophy and method. Our program is comprised of (4) fully equipped classrooms, each with a Montessori Teacher and Assistant.
Mount Sacred Heart Montessori Primary Program practices the educational philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952), one of the world’s foremost educators and Italy’s first woman physician.
By observing children and working with them, Dr. Montessori created a system of education, which has flourished throughout the world. Montessori believed that education begins at birth, and that the first few years of life, being the formative, are the most crucial both mentally and physically.
The Montessori Curriculum lays before the child the “keys to the world.” It contains activities for all aspects of the child’s development. The child learns through his/her experiments in this environment.
