The potential of the child is not just mental, but is revealed only when the complete "Montessori Method" is understood and followed.
St. Albans Montessori Academy of Learning (SAMAOL) was founded in 1985 by Monica Lewis Pringle, Founder/Montessori Education & Training. In 2013, her middle daughter, Vanessa D. Pringle, Executive Director/Co-Founder decided to restart the foundation that has helped educate and foster the youth and community of St. Albans, Queens, since the 70’s.
SAMAOL was originally housed at 195-05 Linden Blvd St. Albans, N.Y. 11412. Since 1973 Van DeVore, had a vision to educate his Southeast Queens community by giving his community jobs close to home. When Mrs. Pringle was looking for a summer teaching job while attending Lincoln University (PA). She noticed the School that was only 4 blocks away from her childhood home was hiring. By the end of the Summer she had become the Educational Director of Young Adults at L&A Wise Memorial Day Care Center.
As we embark on a new era with Mrs. M Pringle and Ms. V Pringle, the Vision, Mission and Aspirations of the Montessori Methods will always come first with the education of Our Scholars.
