Spring is on its way!! All of our classes are embracing spring by learning all about plants, life cycles, rebirth, etc. We have many fun projects planned to celebrate spring. If you have any spring flowers that you would like to bring, the students enjoy the art of flower arranging. This adds beauty to our classrooms and is also educational.

Did You Know? – Scientifically based research on Montessori education shows children in Montessori schools (both public and private) do better on standardized tests. Montessori teaches your child how to think problems through in a logical manner – rather than memorizing answers to test questions. There are many famous Montessori graduates in computer engineering, literature, art, medicine, politics, acting and so much more. Larry and Sergey Brin- founders of Google.com- Jeffrey P. Bezos – founder of Amazon.com, Julia Child – world famous television chef, Anne Frank – renowned World War II diarist are just a few examples.
