About Montessori

The child is endowed with unknown powers, which can guide us to a radiant future. If what we really want is a new world, then education must take as its aim the development of these hidden possibilities.

Established in 1981 by a unanimous, United Nations resolution, September 21st is recognized as the International Day of Peace. Peace Day is devoted to commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace both within and among all nations and people. Dr. Maria Montessori made a connection between peace and education, and grace and courtesy lessons are a foundation of peace education.

Each year the scholars gather around our Peace Poles and sing "Light a Candle for Peace". We miss the sounds of their voices today but are happy to share this throwback to last year's tribute.
