“If you are looking for an excellent school, with a Montessori approach, I highly recommend St. Mark’s Early Learners in Auburn. My son Jackson has learned so much. When he started he was struggling to count, and even hold a pencil. He is now more confident, writing words, and learning to read.”
St. Mark’s Early Learners is a preschool that is dedicated to providing a high-quality Montessori education. An environment has been created so all children feel like the school is a home away from home. We feel each and every child has the right to a safe and healthy environment, to individual attention, to respect, and love and to a stimulating and enjoyable learning experience.
Based on this philosophy, children who attend develop a sense of self-respect and a love of learning, which will endure for the rest of their lives.
The program at St. Mark’s Early Learners is a child-centered rather than adult-directed program. The planning of the daily schedule is based on both the children’s development and their individual needs. An effective program for each child requires joint cooperation between parents and teachers. We also consider communication to be one of the most important aspects of the relationship.
