Partnering 

with 

Parents

Parents play a key role in the development of their children at MSW.

Working with two fully trained Montessori lead instructors and multiple assistants, parents receive support in their parenting journey. There is opportunity for parents to participate in parent education, fundraising, community events, monthly Mass and much more. The Mary Seat of Wisdom family is a great Catholic community.
