Baby peppers, cantaloupe, tomatoes, fresh basil and beautiful flowers continue to grow in this tremendous summer heat! Thank you to our young friends for making sure our plants get plenty of water to drink each day!

The Montessori Kindergarten Year: A Foundation for Life

For our┬áprimary 3rd-year students…

“The kindergarten year in an early childhood Montessori program is a pivotal year. It is the end point of a three-year cycle. It develops the foundation for what Maria Montessori saw as a civilized human being, moving forward through their life.”

Three year primary cycle:
1st Year – Planting the seed
2nd Year – Watering, stem/leaves begin to grow
3rd Year – Beautiful flower finally blooms

“To miss the 3rd year would be missing the most important part of the cycle…it’s like taking the cake out of the oven before it’s done!”
