ORRINGTON, Maine — Grace Montessori, located at East Orrington Congregational Church, will be opening its doors to children between the ages of 3 to 5 in September.

Children will have the opportunity to develop strong skills in math and reading as well as skills in self help, grace and courtesy. There is also a strong focus on learning about the world through use of maps, exploring cultures and the animals unique to each continent. Lessons in foreign language, art and music will be offered through specialist whose own children grew up with a Montessori experience.

Children attending Grace Montessori will spend time connecting with their environment. Supporting the child learn through firsthand experiences the strong connection between all living things. As they develop these skills they will experience and understand how each of us has a role to play in our classroom, our environment and our world.
