Letter from the Executive Director
Whoever touches the life of the child touches the most sensitive point of a whole which has roots in the most distant past and climbs toward the infinite future.
Dear Parents, Families, Teachers, Community Members, and Guests:
As Montessori educators, we are fortunate to have the opportunity to work with young children and their families, as well as future Montessori educators, as a Lab School for the MECA-Seton Teacher Education Program. Having been accredited by both the NAEYC and AMS, we are proud to be an example of excellent early childhood education outside of the Montessori community as well as within. Our school has chosen to focus on this most important time in every child’s life – from before birth to age nine – because it is the foundation from which the rest of their life experiences will grow. The Montessori approach offers so much to these youngest members of society that will help them to become engaged and enthusiastic about their experiences.
At Seton Montessori School and the Montessori Infant & Toddler Community, our goal for each and every child is that, beyond supporting the academic, physical and emotional development that is necessary for success, we hope to instill a joy of learning that will affect their experiences well beyond their first nine years. What we want most for our children is that they become passionate about their own learning, and that they have the tools and skills necessary for them to pursue educational experiences as they grow and develop.
If you are a parent who is not yet a member of the Seton Community, let me take this opportunity to invite you to observe a Montessori classroom in action. Seeing the beauty of our newly refurbished indoor facilities and outdoor environment of four wooded acres, as well as the buzz of active engagement going on in our classrooms. First hand observation is the best way to know for sure that our school is the right match for your child and family!
For our current families, as well as alumni, I hope that you find our website useful; it has features and flexibility that should help to connect our community through yet another avenue. Please contact us with any questions or suggestions for future website development. Also, click here to be added to our Seton Montessori email updates – this will allow you to receive reminders of upcoming events through the Internet and facilitate participation at Seton happenings…
On behalf of the world-class staff and faculty of Seton Montessori School and the Montessori Infant & Toddler Community, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to our website. We look forward to serving the needs of your children!
Anna P. Perry, Ed.M.
