"St. Peter's Montessori School provides a preschool/kindergarten program which
emphasizes self-discipline, social interaction, sensorimotor integration skills, quiet play, and
independent learning. Montessori School stimulates both creativity and imagination, and will help
to develop the emotional and spiritual life of the child in an environment oriented to religious
ethics and moral values.
The Preschool adheres to the basic principles established by Italian physician Maria
Montessori, and uses the educational materials developed by Dr. Montessori as well as other
developmentally appropriate materials. Montessori Education develops self-discipline, selfreliance,
concentration and attention to details through absorption in meaningful work. In the
classroom environment designed for mixed age groups and individual needs, children experience
the Practical Life Exercises, the Sensorial Materials, the Academic Materials (language, reading,
math, geography and science), music, and outdoor studies. Children also experience physical
education and, at the time of letter recognition, computer studies."
