“This is education, understood as a help to life; an education from birth, which feeds a peaceful revolution and unites all in a common aim, attracting them as to a single centre... This is the bright new hope for mankind (Montessori).”

- Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind

Although Dr. Montessori was Italian, her teaching methods cross national borders. Montessori schools were designed to teach all children, with an emphasis on self-directed learning and practical life skills.

Parent Support Meeting/Tutorial
For parents who are feeling anxious or overwhelmed by the prospect of helping your children get onto Google Classroom and/or Google Hangout, we will have an additional tutorial session on Tuesday evening at 7:00 pm, hosted by our communications specialist, Ms. Nona Richardson. Her session will focus on simply using the platform and working with parents who are not as computer savvy as they'd like to be. Ms. Richardson will not be able to troubleshoot issues with devices or computers but will focus strictly on Google applications.
