Let the children be free; encourage them; let them run outside when it is raining; let them remove their shoes when they find a puddle of water; and, when the grass of the meadows is damp with dew, let them run on it and trample it with their bare feet; let them rest peacefully when a tree invites them to sleep beneath it's shade; let them shout and laugh when the sun wakes them in the morning as it wakes every living creature that divides its day between waking and sleeping.When children come into contact with nature, they reveal their strength.

Do you hope to ignite your young child’s love of learning and lay the foundation for a fulfilling future? The Montessori approach to early childhood education will begin that process in a joyful, secure, and loving environment in which your young child will thrive.
The environment encourages preschoolers to explore and discover, to collaborate with classmates, and to take ownership of their education. The Montessori Method encourages self-directed learning that promotes self-confidence, independent thought and action, and critical thinking, while fostering social-emotional and intellectual growth.
Education for peace is a foundational component of Montessori education at all levels. At the Early Childhood level, the teaching of peace, social justice, and global citizenship is based on fostering respect for all people and living things, and helping children learn the tools for peaceful conflict resolution.

Montessori in Infancy supports your baby on their innate mission to learn and leads to a uniquely child-led experience that truly makes life more peaceful for you and baby.

Incorporating Montessori principles with babies looks like:

Creating a consistent, intentional environment for baby to move and explore freely
Incorporating toys (known as materials in the Montessori world) that support baby’s current developmental stage
Offering purposeful and connected interactions with baby that lead to a strong attachment
Honoring baby’s sensitive periods – a term used to describe a time in development when baby is unconsciously driven to a specific part of their growth and learning
Honoring baby within everything we do
Honoring yourself as an vital and beautiful piece your and your baby’s journeys
And MUCH much more!

Speak to your children as if they are the wisest, kindest, most beautiful and magical humans on earth, for what they believe is what they will become.

At Mangrove children are able to learn and grow at their own pace giving them a lifelong love for learning. By observing the child we are able to find out what drives their individual interests. Using that knowledge we create custom lessons to make learning a stress free enjoyable experience.

We had a great first week of school filled with exploration both in and out of the classroom. The children enjoyed the beautiful weather on our first field trip to storybook land and twist cone! A special welcome to all of our new families that are joining us this year and thank you so much to our returning Mangrove families for all of your continued love and support. We are so happy to be able to be a part of your children’s lives as they learn and grow over the next year.

Keep your children wild- don’t make them grow up too fast. Let them spend their days in the sunshine using their imagination. They are the change! Those wild children daydreaming in the sunshine will grow into grounded adults with minds and spirits capable of creating a better future.

Today we had the amazing opportunity to visit an Aberdeen staple, The Flame! The children had so much fun learning what happens behind the scenes of a restaurant! The children helped out in the kitchen and made some of The Flame’s famous garlic toast! To top off the morning the children were able to enjoy a delicious lunch. Thank you so much to Noelle, Brittany Hall, and Rita Fettig for having us; what a great experience!!

These are lessons that stay with your child for a lifetime. We pride ourselves on treating your children with love and respect, nurturing each individual child so they’re able to grow into their full potential.
