In the month of February our Early Childhood students had the opportunity to perform on stage for their parents and teachers! It was a lovely experience for all. The purpose of the showcases is to give parents a glimpse of what their students are working on in class. Showcases also allow children the chance to learn what it is like to be on stage. Although this is the first time many of our students have been on stage, their enthusiasm for performing for loved ones was contagious! During each showcase the students smiled & waved at the sight of family and friends.
As a Montessori program, we take pride in our Specialty classes as an opportunity to offer students experience in a variety of classes and skills. Their experience in each of these classes is somewhat limited but the opportunity to learn more about their interests, along with skills taught about how to find more information about something of interest, is an important element in children seeking further experience in areas of interest!
We thank Haley Dame, our Movement teacher for students aged 3 to 12, and Ana Bunce, the Music Specialist for students aged infant to 6 and 9 to 12 for their time and energy preparing the students for this evening event. Also, our gratitude to the parents, grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles and friends who came out to support our Early Childhood students.
