Montessori School Partnership
In September 2016 All Saints' partnered with the Global Montessori School to bring a high-quality, affordable Montessori Pre-school to Belmont!
We committed significant resources to make the space exceptional and our Co-Rector, the Rev. Cheryl Minor, Ph.D., is part of the daily life of the school, offering Godly Play sessions to interested families and helping out as needed.
This past spring we embarked on a capital campaign that included the establishment of a scholarship fund for members who want to send their children. This will further strengthen our community's connection to the school.
We look forward to a long and successful partnership!
For more information about the school please visit the website at:
Our partnership with the school will incude the offering of Godly Play as an enrichment program for families who wish to participate. The Godly Play program at All Saints', known throughout the country as a "center of excellence", finds its roots in the Montessori movement and shares all of the hallmarks of a Montessori program.
The Rev. Cheryl Minor, Ph.D, a nationally known Godly Play trainer, will offer this program weekly. Dr. Minor is also the Director of the Center for the Theology of Childhood, the academic / publishing arm of the Godly Play Foundation. Her dissertation examined how Godly Play nurtures the spiritual well-being of children.

Stories from our Community
"Two years ago I went to my first Agape meal with my son, who was five at the time. To my surprise, when it was time to pass the peace during the service, he greeted those near by, and then proceeded to greet others around the room, adults and children, known and unknown. I realized then that my faith community here at All Saints', was also his community."
