“The role of education is to interest the child profoundly in an external activity to which he will give all of his potential”
- Dr. Maria Montessori
Welcome to the McCormick Montessori,
I am honored to be the Director of this vibrant and dedicated community. For the past 20 years, I have worked with children from three to eighteen years old as a certified Montessori educator, Spanish teacher, Master teacher, Principal and parent. It is both rewarding and humbling to observe and guide the child on his/her path as they emerge through each continual stage of development.
McCormick Montessori is unique; we have a long history of over 35 years of providing an excellent educational environment for our Swedish Covenant Health employee’s children of all backgrounds. Our experienced, well-qualified teachers and our beautiful grounds and classrooms facilitate the development of the whole child; while focusing on their intellectual, physical, social and global awareness and building up a solid foundation of essential 21st-century skills. We foster self-independence, problem-solving skills, concentration and joy of learning through the Montessori curriculum.
Our number one priority is safety and advocacy for children's developmental milestones. According to the National Association for the Education of Young Children, the most important characteristic for teachers of early childhood development is enthusiasm and passion for children. This goes well beyond being a "enjoying children’s company". It means wanting to make a difference to each and every child regardless of any obstacle a child may have.
With a clear focus on the mission and vision of Swedish Covenant Health and the McCormick Child Care Center, I look forward to being part of your child’s educational journey.
