Last week we filmed a promo video for Virginia Montessori Academy and our childlike energy came to life! We also got a few little helpers, some of these kids definitely have a future in filmmaking!
We got to do a shoot for Finn's school, Virginia Montessori Academy, and him getting to see Daddy work, and me getting to shoot with my son, were equally wholesome and enriching experiences for us ❤

Happy International Peace Day 🕊️
"Maria Montessori believed each generation of children brings renewed hope for a more peaceful world. But so often in our practice we make the mistake of isolating peace as a separate curricular area. As children move from respecting their physical space to respectful collaboration, from projecting their own desires for peace and social justice to leading that change, they will come to understand that conflict is an opportunity for growth and understand their own potential for leadership. This is the essence of Montessori, and can be found in the design of the materials, the prepared environment, and in their actions." -American Montessori Society

Our students created beautiful peace signs to welcome everyone into our building today. ☮️

Working with the circle metal inset.

The introduction to the Metal Insets usually follows a lot of indirect preparation for handwriting that is developed through the use of the Practical Life materials and the Sensorial materials (e.g. the three finger pincer grasp used with the small tongs, eye dropper, and knobbed cylinders aids the child in correct pencil grip). -Greensboro Montessori School
"In this way...children perfect themselves in writing without actually writing." - Dr. Maria Montessori, The Montessori Method


Exploring a math work, using the color coordinated cubes to learn numbers 1-10.


More fine motor skills at work! Fine motor skills in the toddler rooms prep the children for writing in the primary class.

We want to wish Maria Montessori a Happy Birthday! Maria Montessori was an Italian physician, educator, and innovator. She brought to life a method of education that follows children in their natural and instinctual ways of learning. She has inspired educators all over the world to teach children to be productive and peaceful members of society.


Proud moment!
“This activity teaches the child skip counting which is preparation for multiplication. It also indirectly prepares the child to understand cubing numbers.” - montessorialbum com


Flower arranging in the Sprouts classroom! The children love making their classroom’s beautiful and working with natural materials.


We have lots of bookworms in our school. We love to see children having a great appreciation for books.


This activity fosters dexterity and hand-eye coordination and can be found on the sensorial shelf.


Captivated by the tiny world that is thriving in this terrarium.


This ball tracker is a big hit for our younger age group! They love the movements involved with this work.


Montessori education encourages children to learn at their own pace and follow their interests.

"If I could give them more stars I would!
Amazing loving and caring teachers and staff, I see my daughter growing and learning with them everyday. She is having lots of fun, and I see her learning to do things independently like wearing her shoes, jacket, eating and cleaning after herself. They follow a true Montessori method with the kids. They are also helping and supporting the potty training process. They offer her.." says Samah on Google

We love offering children new ways to observe nature. This year thanks to our amazing community we were able to add a rain water collection barrel and bird houses. The children love to check the barrel after a storm and watch the houses for our feathered friends.

Proud cucumber harvester!


"Indoor plants are used in Montessori classrooms to teach Care of the Environment to young children. It is a great way to engage little hands in being helpful and developing careful movements. Here is a simple plant watering presentation that you can set up very easily and get your children involved today."


Little hands learning how to open and close different containers. A simple practical life activity to put together for your child!
