An abundance of learning experiences are presented within the loving, relaxed environment of a home.
The students have the opportunity to develop Christian virtues by reverencing God and learning respect for others and their surroundings. The child will develop academic skills in the areas of Practical Life, Sensorial, Math, Language Arts, Culture, and Science. At the MLH, a small atrium is also prepared according to Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. The purpose of this space is to provide the 3-6 year old children the opportunity fall in love with God by using materials based on the Montessori principles. These materials nurture an understanding of Scripture and Liturgy. Together the young child and the catechist draw closer to God through prayer, silence, worship, song, discussion and the work of the child.
To help illustrate the beauty the child finds in the CGS atrium, I provide two quotes from students:
“Jesus, I am so happy to pray here that there is a tear coming from my eye.”
“The softer we pray, the louder it is for God to hear.”
“All three of our children attended Ms. Rita’s MLH. Ms. Rita is truly an instrument of God’s love and peace. She has an incredible gift for nurturing the children spiritually and intellectually and challenging them to explore and develop their own gifts and talents. We are extremely grateful for all that she does for the children.” Todd S.
“We have been blessed to have our kids go to Montessori Learning Home. When it became necessary for me to return to work full time, Rita and the Montessori Learning Home were a gift from God. Rita treats all of the children as if they were her own.” Julie T.
“The Montessori Learning Home is a haven of peace, a truly ideal environment for children. Miss Rita has a strong academic background, which shows in the way she organizes and teaches the children, but she is also a loving, warm nurturer for all the precious children in her care. I can think of no better place for my children and am delighted that they have had the blessing to know her and spend so much time with her. Alice S.
