Welcome to John XXIII Montessori Children’s Center
Founded in 2003, John XXIII Montessori Center in Front Royal, VA offers multiple programs and sessions for children ages 12 months to 15 years. We facilitate the intellectual and personal growth of the child while fostering a deeper relationship with the Good Shepherd through our programs.
We invite you to learn more about our philosophy of education, vibrant Children’s Center and program offerings by exploring our website and scheduling a visit to meet our staff, children and families who grow and learn as a community.
“Help us, O God, to enter into the secret of childhood, so that we may know, love and serve the child …”Dr. Maria Montessori
Program 1: Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Atrium
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Atrium is the Montessori approach to religious formation of children. It is rooted in the Bible, the liturgy of the church, and the educational principles of Maria Montessori.
Program 2: Three-Day Academics
This program combines “Atrium plus Academics,” utilizing our innovative Catholic Montessori learning center to educate both Primary children (ages 3-6) and Elementary children (ages 6-12).
