Description: Children from 3-6 years old are welcome to our Montessori based Atrium class.

It is Saint Mary’s belief that all children know and have a relationship with God. In our time together, tow adult volunteers encouraged our children to explore their relationship with God through various presentations, crafts, and play. Our atrium class also begins to teach the children some of the basic building blocks of Episcopal worship. The curriculum that is used is Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. How to get involved? If you are interested in volunteering and working with children in the 3-5 age range, please contact Zach Dyrda. The requirement for all volunteers are background checks and to be certified in Keep God’s People Safe. To be able to teach in the Atrium one must begin and commit to finishing the training for Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. Once you have taken your first class, you will be able to be a presenter at Saint Mary, while having mentors.
