Atrium

An Optional After-School Religious Program

Maria Montessori observed that the child possesses a natural spirituality, and early in her life’s work, she designed the Atrium curriculum to enrich that relationship by creating an environment with beautifully prepared materials that foster a child’s religious life, community, and worship through the study of scripture, liturgy, and the history of man’s relationship with God. The Atrium is a place where the child’s work becomes a meditation and conversation with God, a place of prayer and celebration.
