Settling in to Purposeful Work

Categories: Back to School / Dr. Montessori

Purposeful and engaging work and play throughout primary and adolescent communities.


It feels like we are much further into the school year than we actually are.  New students are very settled in classroom communities.  Academic lessons are in full swing.  Intellectual, practical and social experiences abound.  Thank you to Dr. Montessori for laying the framework for an effective and scientific approach to child development across the ages.
