As I moved through the environments late in the morning on the first day all the children returned, I observed an older child in the Children’s House take the initiative to help a younger child struggling to empty a bucket of water into the sink. I overheard a Lower Elementary child gently remind her peers how to handle the classroom materials and listened to three Upper Elementary children discuss their schedules and agree on a time they would meet to complete their work together. The emphasis placed on character development in Montessori education is unparalleled, and to witness character development in action across all ages is pure joy.
We are so glad all the children are back!
