Built in 1981, the Montessori School of San Pedro was established in response to the needs of the community for a pre-school environment that will provide children with enriching learning experiences. With the increase of the school’s population and a significant number of children coming from the Biñan area, the Montessori Children’s Workshop in Canlalay, Biñan was founded in 1989. Each pre-school is staffed with dedicated and qualified teachers trained in the Montessori method by its Directress who was certified by the American Montessori Society. All classrooms are equipped with materials that make learning abstract concepts within reach of the children. The school offers a carefully prepared environment that allow the children to learn academic and life lessons such as the values of respect, cooperation, responsibility, independence, self-confidence and appreciation of others.
Due to the growing demand from pre-school graduates who wish to continue with their elementary studies, the Administration has decided to finally open doors for the Grade School Program of the Montessori Children’s Workshop in Canlalay, Biñan. Primarily, the prospective elementary students are the graduating pre-schoolers from the Preparatory level from the first two Montessori campuses.
The Grade School Department provides continuous Montessori education for toddlers through the sixth grade committed to the cultivation of children’s curiosity, creativity and intelligence. Because of the specialized method of instruction, each classroom has a maximum number of 25 students.
