• "Montessori is a method of education that is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning, and collaborative play. In Montessori classrooms, children make creative choices in their learning, while the classroom and the highly trained teacher offer age appropriate activities to guide the process." This definition from Montessori-nw.org sums up what we are all about. In my classroom of 3, 4, and 5 year old children we are creatively and collboratively learning at all different levels and in different ways each and every day! newsletter
