Message From The Director
Dear Parents and Guests,
I am so pleased that you are visiting our website to learn more about Montessori, the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd and John XXIII Montessori Children’s Center.
Now celebrating our seventeenth year of offering authentic Catholic Montessori to our community, the Center is a vibrant place, humming with life and the enthusiasm of the children who attend. Our Atrium and Academic programs provide opportunities for children to grow spiritually, intellectually, socially and emotionally in a nurturing environment.
At John XXIIIMCC, each child is assisted as best suits their needs to reach their fullest potential. It is deeply satisfying for me to observe the progress and the joy of our children during their time at the Center as they engage in their important work of selfconstruction; I am enriched by being able to witness and share in this work. It is my hope that as you explore our website, links and blog to learn more, you will get a glimpse of the joy we have in this work and will be inspired to join our community of families!
When you are ready to come and take a look in person, please take advantage of our two Open Houses held on the fourth Sunday of February and March each year. At other times, don’t hesitate to contact me to set up a visit and tour. We look forward to potentially welcoming your children and family into our community.
