“If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from children, for children are the makers of men…”
At the heart of the Montessori philosophy is the teacher’s understanding of the nature of the child. Maria Montessori knew that the groundwork for intellectual, spiritual and moral development is laid in the first six years of life. The potential in each child to become an adult of peace and understanding was foremost in her mind; this is especially evident in the writings of her later years. Here at Children’s House, we also have a vision of the Montessori child, what we want children who spend three years in our caring environment to grow up to be. Collectively, we have developed our own Vision of the Human Potential:
At Children’s House Montessori School, we strive to assist the children to become the adults who:
…feel self-empowered to reach their fullest potential
…lead with strength and follow with respect
…tolerate difference and respect diversity
…appreciate all cultures
…preserve our environment
…care for others
…love to learn.
May they know how to let their spirit sing!
