Immaculata Montessori


Immaculata Catholic Montessori was established at the Cathedral parish of St. John the Evangelist in the Fall of 2020.  It is the first, and currently, the only Catholic Montessori in Idaho.  Catholic Montessori education for our two and one half through six-year-old children focuses on supporting the natural tendencies of the child which includes an emphasis on spirituality rooted in Christ and His Church.

By the time a child reaches the age of reason, around age 7, who he or she will be as an adult is fundamentally constructed.  At Immaculata Catholic Montessori, we take great care to ensure that each child’s spiritual, physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development is handled in a manner that respects the dignity of each child, while fostering a love of auto education to last a lifetime.
