Montessori guides are conduits between their children and the vast world of knowledge and discovery that surrounds them. Their role is to observe children, identifying their needs and responding with appropriate individualized guidance and instruction. Montessori guides empower children by establishing trusting, respectful relationships that nurture responsibility and joy in their own learning.
Our children learn by exploring and manipulating specially designed materials. Each material sharpens one concept or skill at a time, and lays a foundation from which students can comprehend increasingly abstract ideas. Children work with materials at their own pace, repeating an exercise until it is mastered. The guide may gently aid the process, but her goal is to inspire rather than instruct.
The mission of Mother of Mercy Montessori is to meet the needs of all children and families served, while striving to foster an encounter with Jesus Christ through Our Blessed Mother with a holistic approach to education and outreach. We further aim to stimulate their natural curiosity and yearning for knowledge through inquiry and concrete experiences designed to prepare them for complex learning, while developing them into compassionate, honest and independent individuals all in union with the Triune God.
