No tricks here - just a treat for the Montessori School of Oakton which received a belayed Halloween Parade Award from Mayor Linda Colbert this week. The school won second place in the Floats without Music category. Congrats to all the students, teachers and parents who worked hard on their 1920's themed float!

IMS recognizes a Montessori school as one that follows laws of nature. In its formal recognition program, IMS gives committed schools a place before the public to declare this commitment to the "true natural" type of Montessori teaching that follows laws of nature - rather than the conventional type that follows personality or culture.
In the general public, since ALL Montessori schools are not the same, this distinction is important, especially to alert those inquiring about your school to know what type of quality and commitment they can expect from what you are offering. Parents especially don't look deep enough to make wise choices for their children. So, IMS offers a distinction that is otherwise not available in the Montessori community.
IMS charges $10 per enrolled child as part of its recognition program. A maximum of $700 per school applies. However, if you school actively participates in IMS training, fees for this training will reduce the recognition fee for the next year - so there is an incentive to get involved in staff and personal training to expand and develop your program's quality and development on behalf of the "new education". IMS schools also receives a certificate of recognition, and regular publications to keep you informed of progress and development in the field.
