50 Years of Excellence in Montessori Education
Founded in 1967, Trinity Montessori School in Rochester, New York is the largest private Montessori school in Western and Central New York. The Trinity philosophy inspires a lifelong love of learning for children aged 21-months through 6th grade. Here to guide your children as they discover and appreciate their own invaluable gifts & talents, Trinity Montessori children learn the qualities of self-conviction, reverence, and peace, as they become all-embracing citizens.
The mission of Trinity Montessori School, Inc.* is to educate the whole child in an enriched environment in accordance with the American Montessori Philosophy. Our goal is the development of each child’s full potential as a peaceful world citizen with a lifelong love of learning.
Since 1967, families have chosen Trinity Montessori School in order to participate in an educational process that strongly emphasizes independent learning. There are more than 265 children, ages 21-months through 6th grade, currently enrolled at Trinity. The primary (3-6-year-old), lower elementary (1st-3rd grade) and upper elementary (4th-6th grade) are grouped in multi-age classes, each with its own three-year sequenced curriculum.
The Montessori philosophy is based upon the belief that the young child is eager to learn and need only be exposed to an enriched environment which stimulates and encourages that desire. The result is that the child will acquire a joy for learning, self-motivation and an inner discipline that will never be lost.
“We cannot know the consequences of suppressing a child’s spontaneity when she is just beginning to be active. We may even suffocate life itself. That humanity which is revealed in all its intellectual splendor during the sweet and tender age of childhood should be respected with a kind of veneration. It is like the sun which appears at dawn or a flower just beginning to bloom. Education cannot be effective unless it helps a child to open up herself to life.”
– Maria Montessori
