By Jon Churn, Head of School for The Montessori School of Winston-Salem
The 2013-14 School Year for The Montessori School of Winston-Salem marks 40 years of service to the children of Winston-Salem. From our humble beginnings to our beautiful 8 acre home on Holder road in Clemmons, The Montessori School of Winston-Salem has held fast to its mission to provide an authentic Montessori education that nurtures a lifelong love of learning and a passion for excellence.
In 1973, the Montessori movement in Winston-Salem was still in its adolescence with an uncertain future. At this time a group of parents inspired by Dr. Montessori’s vision for education came together to form Forsyth Montessori School. In 1984 Forsyth Montessori, still only one of the three existing Montessori schools in Winston-Salem, merged with Reynolda Montessori in rented space in the Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church on Bolton Street and under the new name, The Montessori Children’s Center Inc. (Later to be known as The Montessori School of Winston-Salem).
Forty years since that first inspiration in 1973, The Montessori School of Winston-Salem now serves over 200 students from 18 months through 6th grade. From our talented and dedicated faculty to our beautiful classrooms and outdoor spaces, we are a school designed in every detail to meet the needs of the whole child. It is with joy and gratitude that we celebrate our 40 year history and look toward our next 40 years serving the children of Winston-Salem.
Please join us for an Open House this Sunday, October 6th from 2-4 PM. Guests will get a chance to tour our campus and talk with faculty, leadership and current parents. Come, see the difference a Montessori Education makes.
Prospective Parent Open House also held every Wednesday from 9:00 to 10:30 AM.
