What We Are Learning: September
To all of our new families, a warm welcome to Montessori Children and we are looking forward to getting to know you and your child/children. Welcome back to school to all our returning children and their families.
During the month of September, we will be getting acquainted with one another, going over the ground rules of the classroom, our manners and learning about the fall. This year, Show and Tell will be on Wednesdays. If your child insists on bringing something to school on another day, please do not make an issue of it. Allow them to take it into the school with them. It is better for your child to come into school happy and content.
Early Lessons in Grace and Courtesy
Early lessons of grace and courtesy develop positive interpersonal skills that will serve children throughout their lives. Demonstrations of Practical Life activities involving Grace and Courtesy, as well as modeling this behavior, are designed to nurture a child’s natural qualities of Grace and Courtesy, and his inherent desire to contribute to the peaceful order of his environment.
The teachers at Montessori Children seek to support these desires by gentle modeling and encouragement of this natural tendency. Many of these lessons are not “shelf works.” Some are demonstrations, while others are simply behavior absorbed through the child’s careful observation of their world.
This month we would like you to encourage your child to bring in a picture of their family and/or a picture of something they did during the summer. We will be reading The Kissing Hand by A. Penn during the first week in school. Please encourage bringing Chester that you purchased on “Meet the Teacher Day”.
This month’s school newsletter* has more information on all upcoming events. Please remember you are always encouraged to ask us any questions you may have about your child.

Montessori Children—Young Minds of the Future
The mission of Montessori Children is to develop a well rounded student who is eager to learn, is self-confident, and is a contributing member of society who has the zest and skills for lifelong learning. This will be accomplished in a nurturing prepared environment utilizing a comprehensive preschool level curriculum. Montessori classes place children in multi-age groups, forming communities in which the older children spontaneously share their knowledge with the younger ones.
Our Montessori teachers are prepared to foster all children to reach their fullest potential at their own unique pace with the best practices in efforts aiding the children’s natural learning tendencies as they unfold in this “prepared environment” to aid the most profound young minds of the future.
