Montessori Education Week
Around the United States, families and schools celebrated Montessori Education Week from February 23 through March 1. Perhaps you heard the Maine Montessori Association‘s announcement on National Public Radio about this special week. This week is designed to get the word out about the learning and community that takes place at Montessori schools. It is a way to celebrate the work our schools are doing with the greater community.
Montessori Education Week is also a great opportunity to reflect on why we value Montessori education. Why do families seek out Montessori among the many approaches to early childhood and elementary education? The Montessori Opportunities organization asked parents this question. They received responses from a number of Montessori schools. Follow this link to read what parents have to say about choosing Montessori.
