On Friday, 7th November we held a special Parent Presentation, with a speaker, to launch our new website. This was well attended and a great success.
Barbara Isaacs, Director for National Strategies for Montessori and the Senior Accreditation Officer for Montessori Evaluation and Accreditation Board (MEAB), gave a thought provoking talk on:“Independence – first steps towards a happy future”
“The child’s first conscious bid for independence is made when s/he defends him/herself against those who try to do the action for him/her”.
Barbara told the audience that the children who benefit from these opportunities flourish as emerging autonomy supports their capacity to be resilient, to embrace challenges and demonstrate initiative, all of which are essential ingredients of a happy future.
Montessori practitioners often use Montessori’s quote: “Help me to do it by myself” as the guiding principle and key aim of their practice.
Miss Charlotte then went on to share her wide knowledge on the cultural aspect of the Montessori curriculum which encompasses ‘Understanding the World’ under the current statutory Early Years Foundation Stage (2014) framework and our Montessori Sensorial equipment.
The Principal, Anne-Marie True, had the great pleasure of launching the website showing it to all those present and highlighting the many new benefits:
The evening concluded with refreshments, conviviality, with seasonal early November fireworks in the background, and informal discussion on Montessori practice.
