Bishop Pates recently visited the School of Mary-Montessori, an independent educational effort that offers an early childhood program and an elementary program for homeschooled children. The School of Mary-Montessori operates out of the former St. Boniface Church in Waukee. The school incorporates Catechesis of the Good Shepherd in the full Montessori academic program. The school is available for children ages 3-6 years old and has a two-day-per-week elementary program for children in grades 1-6, benefiting homeschooling families.
