A new Montessori school has filed for permits to open in Del Ray and is currently enrolling new students.
The Monarch Montessori School is a new program coming to 218 East Monroe Avenue, also the location of St Paul Pentecostal Church, though the school’s website says the program is a private, non-sectarian school.
“We believe that each child has different gifts, challenges and styles of learning,” the school’s website said. “At Monarch Montessori, each child’s individual path is recognized and celebrated.”
The special use permit says the school will be open from 8 a.m.-5:30 p.m. The school is expected to have around 98 students with 12 employees.
“Every school that you encounter will have its own education philosophy,” the website said. “Monarch Montessori’s philosophy centers around the principle of individualism. Students perceive themselves as capable of making their own choices, while in constant relationship with other students and guides in the classroom.”
The Monarch Montessori School’s website also said the school will pay all employees a living wage, subsidize public transportation costs for all employees, offer paid training for teachers and set aside 20% of all slots to families eligible for subsidized child care/voucher programs.
The school’s website said tour dates will be available late in the fall.
