“Free the child’s potential and you will transform him into the world.”
– M. Montessori
These early years are crucial to the child -it is when he makes sense of his world, establishes his independence, and builds the foundation for all future learning. The Montessori environment is carefully prepared to offer many opportunities to practice these learning skills. Here, the child is free to choose his work, to repeat and perfect the skill, and to complete the cycle by cleaning up for himself. Each day they arrive excited to get to work, and leave satisfied -their work is given the respect it deserves, by the adults, and by the other students. Here are just a few examples of the work and fun we have had so far this school year:
If you are interested in learning more about the Montessori Method, or about our school, please consider scheduling an observation. Visitors are welcomed by a host child, and invited to sit in our environment to watch the children at work. There is no better way to spend an hour than in the company of these people -working earnestly, living joyfully, not aware that they are building our future.
