Practical life lessons inspire the child with real-world, purposeful tasks and tools, helping them to see themselves, correctly, as capable and competent.
Maria Montessori says, “A child who has become master of his acts through long and repeated exercises, and who has been encouraged by the pleasant and interesting activities in which he has been engaged, is a child filled with health and joy and remarkable for his calmness and discipline.” — The Discovery of the Child

We love supporting children's natural creativity and interests. "Fall" in love with this Autumn poem by one of our Upper Elementary students.

In the morning,
the soft breeze pushes against my back.
It's not too hot,
not too cold.
The shed was sitting perfectly still,
the willow was bending gracefully,
The clouds a clear white.
When the afternoon strikes twelve,
it rained a heavy downpour.
Though it was a gloomy grey,
the large, wet puddles were fun!
At five in the evening,
the easy wind made the leaves sway.
The sky was blue,
the air fresh.
The birds were tweeting.
The sunset was delicious to behold.
Violet, Rose and gold.
The shadows overtook the land,
the leaves turned a dark red.
The sun dispersed with an orange gleam.
Then I smiled to myself and said:
"This is the best way to spend Autumn!"
and went to bed.

Nurturing independence is an aim that every parent and educator values, but it can feel like a dominant focus in Montessori practice. Why is a baby free to move on the floor rather than contained in a swing? Why is there a toddler using a real broom to sweep their classroom rather than playing with pretend toys? Why is a second grader managing their own academics rather than following the teacher? How is it possible that an adolescent has time to start their own business?
