Our Early Childhood students had a really fanstastic time the first summer session. The children who are new to the program are fitting in nicely and getting settled. The field trips and splash/bounce days have been a success and even with a little cold weather, camp is a huge success!
Our Toddlers, ages 18 months to 3 years, are having a very busy and productive summer. We are always amazed at these little ones and all they are capable of! MCS still has space in our Toddler program for fall. Give us a call to schedule a tour and learn more about the magic of Montessori at the Toddler level.
"It is also necessary for his physical development to place the soul of the child in contact with creation, in order that he may lay up for himself treasure from the directly educating forces of living nature."- Maria MontessoriWith the weather improving, what could be better than moving some daily learning into the outdoors? Maria Montessori was a real advocate for the learning experiences that take place outdoors. She emphasized the outdoor environment being an extension of the classroom. Our teachers are so fabulous at encouraging and helping our students to enjoy explore, learn, and love the outdoors. "There must be provision for the child to have contact with nature; to understand and appreciate the order, the harmony and the beauty in nature."- Maria Montessori
Thanks again to Ute Crossfit owners and MCS parents Bobbi Jo and Tommy for providing a fantastic field trip for our Aspens class. The students (and parent chaperones and teachers) had a really great time!
