St. Monica PreK

4320 87t Ave SE, Mercer Island, WA

Starting at $626.92/mo

St. Monica Parish PreK is a full day STEM+Arts PreK program for children ages 4 and 5. All students must be 4 by August 31st and fully potty trained.

Our Facility
We have two spacious classrooms each with a WA state certified teacher, full time teaching assistant, who is also fluent in Spanish, and a third floating assistant that is available to both classrooms. We have just expanded our playground and are in the process of creating an outdoor learning classroom which will include water play, building, climbing, art, a field, observation/science, writing, and garden. The expansion project will be completed the end of July.

Our Curriculum
We believe children learn best through hands on active exploration. Each day students are given three hours of uninterrupted free play; two hours indoors with daily access to dramatic play, art, science, blocks, writing, books, and manipulatives. They have two recess periods a day, a 60 minute recess mid-day and a 20 minute recess in the afternoon. To focus academics on the individual needs of each student they are divided into small groups and rotate through a math, reading, writing, and story comprehension activity weekly. Because we are part of St. Monica Parish School, a K-8 school, our students also attend upper school specialists weekly in Spanish, Music, Library, and Yoga.

Through meaningful hands-on experiences and within a safe and loving environment St. Monica students are working to become Christian role models, life long learners, effective communicators, and responsible citizens. Please check out our website today and find out more about our wonderful STEM+Arts program.

Living Montessori Education Community

Costimate: $402/wk

Living Montessori Education Community was founded by Afrose Amlani in 2006 with a vision of optimizing children's life skills by fostering healthy emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual development in their most formative years. She began her journey with children in Uganda, East Africa in her mother's Montessori school and the Kampala YMCA. With her love for children and her drive to nurture the development of the whole child she dedicated her life work to creating Living Montessori Early Education for Infants and toddlers and Living Montessori Academy for preschoolers and elementary students upto grade 5.
At Living Montessori we are committed to offering the highest quality Montessori education to every student. To maximize their potential we respond to their own learning style, cultivate an immense love of learning, promote the development of practical life skills, support their intrinsic value and nurture autonomy, responsibility and sound internally directed discipline.
OUR CORE VALUES ARE:
Quality, Integrity, Respect, Authenticity, Autonomy, Community and Teamwork.
At Living Montessori we care about what children eat, therefore, we are the first school to provide highly nutritious organic meals planned by our in-house Nutritionist.
During the school day students benefit from rich academics, practical life skills, foreign language, creative arts, yoga, music and movement. In the after school they can engage in arts and craft, martial arts, swimming, creative arts, lego engineering, mandarine, dance, sign language, our amazing outdoor space, and more.
To create an optimal learning environment we custom built our facility using green materials wherever possible. We made use of abundant natural light and plants to connect the indoors to the outdoors and built a separate yoga studio, music room and an indoor gym. Outdoors the children get to play and learn in our large, nature inspired playground with slides imbedded into natural mounds, natural climbing structures and organic gardens full of fruits, herbs and vegetables which foster connection to the earth, respect, curiosity and a love of learning.
We invite you to visit our website and tour our school so you can learn more about what makes us unique and decide if our school is right for your family.
