General School Mission

"The goal of Seton Montessori School is to enable each child to grow in awareness of him or herself, of others, and of the world around. Dr. Maria Montessori recognized that the very young child goes through periods of great sensitivity in particular areas during which one learns more easily than any other time in life. A totally prepared environment awaits the absorbent mind of the child. Each material, activity, or experience is expressly designed to give the child new perspective, to develop a scientific concept, or to encourage growth as a social being. Seton fosters a sense of partnership between the children, the teachers, and the parents to work collaboratively towards the common goal of realizing potential."
