By making the benefits of Montessori methods accessible to the community and instilling global awareness in a Christian environment, Blessed Star Montessori Christian School hopes to foster the development of independent and productive members of society.
The mission of Blessed Star Montessori Christian School is to provide all children with a safe, nurturing, fun, God-centered learning environment. We strive for a solid foundation in intellectual growth, goodwill, Christian belief, and peace. Our innovative academic program is rooted in the teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1951), Italy's first female certified physician and pioneer in early childhood education.
Blessed Star has adopted the teaching methods of Dr. Maria Montessori, who recognized the child's spontaneous urge to learn and to seek information. Like Dr. Montessori, we believe children are naturally curious and eager to find order in their world. When placed in an enriching environment, they are capable of absorbing knowledge, and have the power to teach themselves. They experience joy and happiness as they unlock the secrets of the universe.
We encourage children to participate in age appropriate, exploratory activities that promote their development. To enhance their spiritual lives, we want all children to become accustomed to praying, learning about God and singing Bible songs.
"Allowing the child to observe, to explore and to follow his normal interests is a form of respect towards the child."
-Dr. Maria Montessori
