As the weeks have rapidly passed we have learned more and more about your children. Each child, in very different ways, has opened up to us – some quickly, some slowly – revealing a person, a personality. It is a joy to learn about (your) little humans and the potential they bring to our lives and the world. We have so much to learn from each other.

In a Montessori Early Childhood classroom, highly trained teachers create a customized environment crafted to her unique abilities, interests, and learning style.
This approach to learning is “hands-on.” Dr. Maria Montessori believed (and modern science has affirmed) that moving and learning are inseparable. In the prepared classroom, children work with specially designed manipulative materials that invite exploration and engage the senses in the process of learning.
All learning activities support children in choosing meaningful and challenging work at their own interest and ability level. This child-directed engagement strengthens motivation, supports attention, and encourages responsibility.

Dr. Maria Montessori knew that during the period from birth to age 3, the child’s brain develops more rapidly than at any other time, and more learning takes pace than at any other stage of development.
In a Montessori environment, like Walnut Farm’s toddlers will be with teachers -loving, nurturing and rigorously trained in child development- who create peaceful, supportive and safe environments for our youngest children. In these spaces a child’s natural passion for wonder, curiosity, exploration, independence and discovery comes alive.

Step by step for a clean room. Clean your room is an abstract idea and most three-year-olds don’t have the experience, memory or skills to clean their rooms all by themselves.

Avoiding Morning Madness - Maren Schmidt

Another good one as you prepare for school to start!

Avoiding morning madness. Getting everyone out the door in the morning can feel like we've put in a full day's work before 7 am. We have to deal with the sleepyhead, the dawdler, the procrastinator, the inappropriate dresser and the forgetful space cadet.
