Fun Friday Fact!

Do you know that Taylor Swift was a Montessori student?

Taylor went to Alvernia Montessori in West Reading, Wyomissing, PA, with 55 other children. Her headmistress was Ann Marie Coll.

She attended preschool during the 1994-1995 school year, then kindergarten during the 1995-1996 school year.

Taylor had made a pledge to donate a total of $250,000 to the schools that she attended as a youth. Alvernia was the lucky recipient of $5000 from the famed singer.

Can you spot Taylor in the picture?

What a special, fun morning at Children's House Montessori School! Walker Nature Center came over to present: "Animals in Winter". We learned all about what the local critters do during the Winter months! The children got to talk about animals in Virginia; find out if they stick around during the Winter; they got to touch a real fox pelt and a turtle's shell! Thank you so much Walker Nature Center!!
