Welcome to John XXIII Montessori Children’s Center!
John XXIII Montessori Children’s Center, Inc. was founded in 2002 for the purpose of offering the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) Atrium program for children. CGS is a unique religious formation method based on Montessori principles and grounded in Thomistic philosophy in the Catholic tradition. This beautiful program for children 3-12 years allows God to speak directly to the child, helping the child to fall in love with the person of Jesus. Growing in response to the heartfelt desire of area parents, in 2009 we added an academic Montessori curriculum as a further program option. Our Three Day program incorporates A.M.I. Montessori method within the context of the Atrium spiritual environment, enhancing any home education program by providing structure, depth and expert guidance to children and parents alike.
We invite you to learn more about our vibrant Children’s Center and program offerings by exploring our website and scheduling a visit to meet our staff, children and families who grow and learn as a community!
“Help us , O God, to enter into the secret of childhood, so that we may know, love and serve the child in accordance with the laws of thy justice and following thy holy will.” – Dr. Maria Montessori
