Thank you for your interest in Pathway Montessori School.
Pathway Montessori School was founded in 2012 by Mary Howard King and Marsha McKinney Kiste with a desire to offer a Montessori experience to some of the area’s youngest children. With gratitude and appreciation for All Saints’ Episcopal Church, Pathway Montessori School operates in its current location. The name Pathway Montessori was adopted to symbolize a course of discovery and exploration for learning.
We seek to provide a safe, pleasing, enriching, and nurturing environment based on Maria Montessori’s principles and philosophy. We offer an environment with intriguing materials, where all children can spontaneously investigate, explore, and discover. Our approach is to allow each child to learn at his or her own best pace and honor the child’s needs to the fullest extent.
For more information about our policies, daily activities, and programs, please clink on the link to the Parent Handbook.
The School expects the parent or guardian to continue to be the child’s primary teacher, so collaborating with the teachers and the School is vital to the child’s experience at the School. We report daily to the parent or guardian regarding the child’s experiences at School.
We also encourage families to incorporate Montessori methods and philosophy at home. At the end of the Parent Handbook there are resources for parents listed that are helpful in learning more about Maria Montessori and her methods of educating young children.
“The greatness of the human personality begins at the hour of birth.” --Maria Montessori
