Trinity Montessori is a private Christian school dedicated to the development of children ages 3 months to 12 years using the educational principles set forth by Dr. Maria Montessori. We are a thriving community of approximately 65 families and educators working together to develop each child’s innate love of learning as well as a strong sense of community based on respect, trust, and cooperation.

Operating as usual


Trinity will be on a 1 hour delay. Children may arrive at 8:45. Teachers will be in earlier to check on outdoors and ensure all is well. See you then!

For Ms. Myra, in memory of her husband Robert, organized by Mike Olson 07/25/2023

It is with a heavy heart that we share the news of Robert Berry, Jr's recent and sudden passing.

Our own Ms. Myra, who worked with the children of Trinity Montessori School as an assistant teacher, was married to Robert for many many years, and have a big wonderful family to prove it. Our hearts and minds are with Ms. Myra and her children during this time of profound adjustment.

Please consider donating to the linked GoFundMe campaign to provide some support and assistance to Ms. Myra so that her energies can be focused on healing, prayer, and family this fall.

Additionally, if you know of anyone outside the TMS community that may have been touched by Ms. Myra or Robert, feel free to share this link far and wide, as their loving and generous influence surely spreads through this community and beyond.

Thank you all so much,


For Ms. Myra, in memory of her husband Robert, organized by Mike Olson We were saddened to hear that Robert Berry Jr passed away on July 16th; to k… Mike Olson needs your support for For Ms. Myra, in memory of her husband Robert

Older students in our elementary program studying Medieval times, in particular the Battle of Hastings. On these occasions older students are able to use a computer for their research.


"Supranature" was Dr. Montessori's word for the collected work, knowledge, and innovation of humankind, and she imbued her methodology with gratitude toward each person, past and present, for their contribution to our current world. It's a pretty beautiful concept.
If you are feeling generous this GivingTuesday, consider making a gift by visiting As Maria Montessori would have said, "grazie mille!"

The metal inset is a very important work in the Casa classrooms. We say that it is an “indirect” preparation for writing. A child who has gained mastery with her hands is a child who is a capable and Independent student! See the progression from the metal inset all the way to Elementary students who are now studying grammar and writing sentences. The last three photos are six year old elementary children’s writing work. It all begins in Casa!


Maria Montessori observed that children were intrinsically motivated to seek independence. ✨ When adults rush in to help, this disrupts the child’s concentration and causes them to be dependent and less likely to try things on their own. 😔 How can the adult nurture independence?
❇️Leave enough time for the child to accomplish the task
❇️Avoid helping the child with something you know he or she could do
❇️Invite the child to help you with tasks
❇️Have predictable routines
❓What are your tips for nurturing independence?

Last day of school—and what do they want to do? Time Line of Life of course!! Happy Summer from Elementary! 🥳💕🌸☘️


Thank you to all our SRT team officers, and Officer DelaRosa for keeping all of us safe! Happy Summer everyone!


The School Year is all but Over! What an incredible year it has been; so many memories have been made, so many friends have laughed and loved and shared, and so much has been learned.

Here's just a little behind-the-scenes retrospective into the daily experience of our students. We'll all miss you dearly this summer, and can't wait to see all the returning students in the Fall!

Have a wonderful Summer Vacation everyone! Thanks for being a part of Team Trinity!!


As usual, Maria Montessori says it best when the rest of us are at a loss for words.


This little student has just begun learning about multiplication using this bead board. She very meticulously places the beads on the board (having to chase a bead that gets away from time to time!). As she was working on her 5s, she got to 5x5 and as she placed the final row of 5 beads she spontaneously said, “now that’s a real square!” Do you see how she made her own discovery? Do you think she will remember and retain that observation later on as she progresses through her math?


The Moms have Spoken!! Lowcountry Parent's 2022 Mom's Choice Awards issue is out today, and Trinity Montessori School is the runner-up for Best Montessori School in Charleston! Thank you to everyone who voted, and to everyone that makes the Trinity community so special.
We're still enrolling children ages 6 and up! If you've ever thought that the Montessori method might be right for your rising Elementary student, give us a call today!

You might think this little fellow was in trouble—-he’s not! Indeed he’s been working very hard this morning and needed a little break, “Ms. Stacey can I just watch the rain? I really like to watch the rain.” Children know what they need, and they need the space to reflect just like adults.

Elementary students working hard—math, writing, grammar and the love of all of them right now—geography!! They have not only traced and labeled different countries and states, they have also happily researched the different animals that live in those places. It’s busy and exciting here in Elementary at Trinity Montessori School!!


Happy Birthday to the one, the only, Ms. Barbara!! A mainstay in our Infant Room, Ms. Barbara takes care of the Trinity Staff just like she takes care of your babies. Enjoy another trip around the sun!
