Global Montessori School starts its 4th year at All Saints
This week marked the beginning of the fourth year of our partnership with the Global Montessori School. From the beginning our vision was not to simply have a paying tenant in our building, but to view this as a partnership. Together we are working to provide families in our community with a reasonably priced, high-quality Montessori program for children aged 15 months - 6 years. The school has a total of 61 children enrolled, and are planning to expand to accommodate an additional 9 children. From the beginning the school has had a waiting list which is a testament to its visionary director, Mrs. Sahar Dahdouh. This also shows that we are meeting a real need in this community!
Our Co-Rector, Cheryl Minor, provides daily support to the school. In addition, she is starting her second year of teaching music in the school. Fran Hutchinson joins her on Wednesday afternoons to offer Godly Play to families who choose. We are not sure how big the program will be this year, but last year over half the children in extended care chose to participate.
Please continue to hold the school - staff and families - in your prayer. May this year be another wonderful year of learning, care, and relationship building! Special prayers for safety as we finish up the construction projects at the church!
