Holy Communion Day School

Home » Holy Communion Day School

Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make him learn things, but by the endeavor always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence.

–Maria Montessori

Holy Communion Day School was established in September 2011. HCDS is a Christian, Montessori inspired preschool for students 18 months to 5 years, and are staffed with certified Montessori teachers. Our School hours are: 8:45 am – 12:15 pm, Monday through Friday We offer 3-day, 4-day, and 5-day options for all ages We are located in midtown Charleston, on the corner of Ashley and Cannon. While many of our students come from the surrounding neighborhoods, we are convenient to the Crosstown, the James Island Connector, the Ravenel Bridge, and I-26, and we serve families from all over the greater Charleston area. The Day School provides an opportunity for each child to grow and develop independently, at their own pace, in our two multi-age Montessori Programs: Toddler for ages 18-36 months, and Casa for children 3-5 years old. Our environments are specially prepared for the children, designed to meet their needs intellectually, physically, and spiritually. We follow Dr. Montessori’s philosophies and encourage each student’s inherent love of learning. Students are encouraged to respect themselves and others and to develop inner discipline and confidence. Casa children are invited weekly to experience our Atrium with a certified Catechist of the Good Shepherd during the class period.

“It is not enough for the teacher to love the child. She must first love and understand the universe. She must prepare herself, and truly work at it.”

― Maria Montessori

“Almighty God, heavenly Father, you have blessed us with the joy and care of children: Give us calm strength and patient wisdom as we bring them up, that we may teach them to love whatever is just and true and good, following the example of our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen”.
