A Letter from Our Administrator
Dear Parents,

     Maria Montessori opened her first preschool in 1907.  The Montessori movement has grown and flourished in the past 100 years.  She believed, as do our staff members, that children absorb knowledge through their experiences and their surroundings.  Every piece of equipment, every Montessori material Dr. Montessori designed was based on what she observed children doing "naturally".
     This is our school's 35th Anniversary.  I am so pleased that we are all a part of this wonderful preschool.  Our children come to school each day and experience opportunities that prepare them for lifelong learning.  Our excellent reputation as a leader in preschool education has served the Bardstown-Nelson County community well.  We are proud of the lives we have touched and look forward to continuing to work with the young children in our area.
     This school year marks my 25th year in Montessori education.  I am very proud of our school and happy that we will partner together to give each child entrusted to our care a supportive and nurturing environment.  Please feel free to contact me at any time during the year.  Happy Anniversary to us all!  We are ready for an exciting "Celebration of Children"!
