"Almighty God, heavenly Father, you have blessed us with the joy and care of children: Give us calm strength and patient wisdom as we bring them up, that we may teach them to love whatever is just and true and good, following the example of our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen". ~ the Book of Common Prayer
Holy Communion's Day School first opened in September of 2011. We are a Christian, Montessori preschool for students 6-months to 5-years located in midtown Charleston. Our school hours are 8:45 am-12:15 pm, Monday through Friday. We offer 3-, 4-, and 5-day options for all ages. Many of our students come from the surrounding neighborhoods; however, because we are conveniently located to the Crosstown, the James Island Connector, the Ravenel Bridge and I-26 we are able to serve families from all over the greater Charleston area.
The Day School provides an opportunity for each child to grow and develop independently, at their own pace, in our three multi-age Montessori environments: Infant/Toddler for children ages 6-months to 18-months, Toddler for children ages 18-months to 36-months, and Primary for children 3-5 years old. Our environments are especially prepared for the children, designed to meet their needs intellectually, physically, and spiritually. We follow Dr. Maria Montessori's philosophies and encourage each student's inherent love of learning. Students are encouraged to respect themselves and others and to develop inner discipline and confidence.
“Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make him learn things, but by the endeavor always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence.”
― Maria Montessori
