This week the Providence Montessori School House introduced three new special children’s programs.

Montessori & Me

Moms, dads, grandparents or caretakers attend five sessions of 45 minute programs with their child ages 9 – 24 months. Together they will experience the love and wonder of learning.

Montessori School Summer Camp for children aged 3 to 6 years

The school is seeking dads to help construct raised garden beds in the school’s side yard for the Providence Montessori Community Garden. Moms and kids will plant seeds in order to build a stronger sense of community and improve nutrition.

Parents can now enroll their children in one-week themed summer camps from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily throughout the summer that include Montessori classroom activities, arts & crafts, science experiments, outdoor water activities, music, movement and most importantly, fun! Themes include high interest kid topics such as a focus on bugs, the secret life of pets, and stomping with dinosaurs.

Full-day Accredited Kindergarten Program

A full day accredited Kindergarten program will be available beginning in September. To learn more about the advantages of a Montessori kindergarten program, parents can attend an informational session on Tuesday, April 2nd at 6:30 p.m. at the school.

About the School

Providence Montessori School House opened in Collegeville six years ago offering childcare and learning based on the Montessori principles of self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play. At Montessori, children make creative choices in their learning, while the classroom and the highly trained teachers offer age-appropriate activities to guide the process.  The school is located near Kimberton Whole Foods on the side of the Collegeville Shopping Center.

The school, which enrolls children from 6 weeks to six years, now has 45 children enrolled and seven teachers with combined experience of close to 100 years. “Enrolling a child in a Montessori school is an investment in education,” says owner Amy Augustine. “We believe that excellent early education for a child under age 6 is just as important as the choice of a college.”

In addition to their regular Montessori School, they offer a lower school for children under three, and school child care services.
