About Us

The mission of Holy Name of Mary Montessori School is to assist your child in developing spiritually, socially, academically and physically; while strengthening the existing union and love of God through the teachings of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.

About Montessori

The Montessori classroom is a prepared environment, presenting our young students with materials and exercises made for small fingers. It invites your child to investigate his environment and develop the skills needed to take control of his world.

Fundraisers

Stop by after masses (at the church and chapel) on September 24/25. We will be selling delicious, homemade treats along with a 50/50 raffle and tickets to our elegant silent auction soirée.

Lessons

The Montessori classroom is a prepared environment, presenting our young students with materials and exercises made for small fingers. It invites your child to investigate his environment and develop the skills needed to take control of his world. Child-friendly materials are easily accessible, allowing your child to try new things and learn with each step. Shapes, structures, textures and colors in the Practical Life and Sensorial Areas lend themselves to drawing, building, counting and molding. This captures your child's attention and hones important focus and concentration skills. The children's love of pouring, for example, becomes a multi-level exercise that teaches motor control with varying sized containers, and sensory stimulation with the sounds and textures of the varying items poured. By performing these exercises until he succeeds, your child builds confidence and is ready to take on greater challenges. Our head teachers are certified Montessori professionals dedicated to serving our children. Our assistant teachers take additional training classes every year as part of their professional development. Our "Atrium" is a special place where the children may nurture their relationship with God. Hands on materials allow children the opportunity to work and pray in their own spiritual environment.

A unique aspect of our program at HNMMS is the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd which is a Montessori based program for religious instruction. In our Atrium children experience liturgy and are introduced to scripture. The children set the Altar Table and study the Parable of the Good Shepherd.

Language learning is a constant process in the classroom. The sandpaper letters give the child a visual, kinesthetic and auditory impression of each key sound as well as guiding the hand in the correct letter stroke.

Giovanni’s 1 picture of the world

Children are eager to understand their place in the world and their relationship with other cultures. The puzzle maps in the Geography area of the classroom help instruct them in the names of the continents.

Stefania Tweezing, Spooning and Pouring

One of the first areas of the classroom we introduce to the child is the area of Practical Life. Here the child finds delight in materials that resemble tasks performed in the home and she is able to work on her developmental need for fine motor development.
