Happy Birthday in heaven to one of the greatest women (people in general) who has lived! Thank you Dr. Maria Montessori for all you did for us! We will continue to advocate for Montessori Education around the globe 🌎 #montessori

On 31 August the Montessori community celebrates Maria Montessori’s birthday, the one to conclude the 150th anniversary year 🎉

By far the most emotional birthday gift ever for Maria Montessori may well have been Mario’s presence on her 1940 birthday, during her years in India. Upon Italy joining the Second World War on the side of the Germans in 1940, Mario, as an Italian, was considered a hostile national by the British, who sent him to a prisoner of war camp (June 1940). Maria Montessori was distressed not to have him around: he was not only her dearly beloved son, but he also was her main connection to the outside world, and mainstay in the delivery of the courses. Montessori, friends and diplomats fiercely lobbied for Mario’s release — which became a fact on Maria Montessori 70th birthday: 31 August 1940.

The photograph shows the two Montessori’s reunited on her birthday, clearly brimming with joy.

If you want to read more about the lead-up to this happy event, and how the Montessori’s jointly continued their precious work in India, delve into the title Maria Montessori Writes to her Grandchildren, letters from India, 1939-1946 (available at montessori-pierson.com).

DO YOU KNOW THE SIGNS OF SLOW PROCESSING?

If your child struggles with processing information, homework, lacks focus with reading, and needs extra time to make decisions, they may have trouble with processing speed. Here are additional signs...

We have been receiving a lot of emails, calls and messages from families asking for availability at our schools. We would love to thank you all for showing interest in our school and in Montessori as an alternative method of education.

Unfortunately all our groups and 2 locations are full for next school year (2021-2022). Our waiting list is also quite extensive, nonetheless, we encourage you to email us and request an appointment for September or October 2021. We can then place your child(ren) on our waiting list and/or enroll them for the 2022-2023 school year.

Please visit our website for more information, www.nosfortalesa.org . There may be a few changes for the coming school year (regarding the information on our website) but nothing too drastic.

Wishing you all a safe and happy weekend ahead! ❤🤗❤

Mompreneur Spotlight!✨ Nos Fortalesa Montessori Aruba Elementary

My Montessori Journey started because of my first-born daughter back in 2008 (she was 3 at the time) and ever since I started Nos Fortalesa Montessori Aruba in 2014, I had to juggle and balance being a mom and an entrepreneur. It is both the hardest and most rewarding role I ever had to take on. So from the start of Nos Fortalesa Montessori, I was a “mompreneur”.

In the beginning, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur, I saw a need for change in the educational field and merely made it a priority to actively bring a change to our island. It was hard for me to accept putting a “price” on education, unfortunately, private schools depend (almost) solely on the tuition fees.

Balancing a business and being a mother of 2 (Nayzah 15 and Savannah 3) has brought me lots of joy and meaning to my life. I definitely feel like I am following my calling! After all, Nos Fortalesa Montessori would not exist if it was not for my daughters.

What started as a mom's journey ended up as the birth of an alternative method of education on our island for elementary school children (and primary since January 2018), offering something different to many children and their families.

Happy Mother’s Day to All Moms!🌸

"Gillian is a seven-year-old girl who cannot sit still in school. She continually gets up, gets distracted, flies with thoughts, and doesn't follow lessons. Her teachers worry about her, punish her, scold her, reward the few times that she is attentive, but nothing. Gillian does not know how to sit and cannot be attentive.

When she comes home, her mother punishes her too. So not only does have bad grades and punishment at school, but she also suffers from them at home.

One day, Gillian's mother is called to school. The lady, sad as someone waiting for bad news, takes her hand and goes to the interview room. The teachers speak of illness, of an obvious disorder. Maybe it's hyperactivity or maybe she needs a medication.

During the interview another teacher arrives who knows the little girl. He asks all the adults, mother and colleagues, to follow him into an adjoining room from where she can still be seen. As he leaves, he tells Gillian that they will be back soon and turns on an old radio with music.

As the girl is alone in the room, she immediately gets up and begins to move up and down chasing the music in the air with her feet and her heart. The teacher smiles as the colleagues and the mother look at him between confusion and compassion, as is often done with the old. So he says:

'See? Gillian is not sick, Gillian is a dancer!'

He recommends that her mother take her to a dance class and that her colleagues make her dance from time to time. She attends her first lesson and when she gets home she tells her mother:

'Everyone is like me, no one can sit there!'

In 1981, after a career as a dancer, opening her own dance academy and receiving international recognition for her art, Gillian Lynne became the choreographer of the musical 'Cats.'

Hopefully all 'different' children find adults capable of welcoming them for who they are and not for what they lack.

Long live the differences, the little black sheep and the misunderstood. They are the ones who create beauty in this world." - Run Wild My Child
