Montessori Open House


I had a great time at our Montessori open house this evening!  Our 16 month old attends Christian Montessori School.  He’s moving from the infant room to the toddler room this year.  Very exciting.  I had so much fun checking out the various shelf work available in both toddler rooms.  As you can see I took lots of pictures!  Can’t wait to try some of the ideas at home.  I loving watching the kids enter a new room and immediately get the concept of working off the shelf.  This shows me that the design is very suitable for toddler learning.  Everything is at their eye level and easily accessible.  Everything is interesting to them.  I enjoy the “supply list” and “wish list” presented by the teachers.  They aren’t our individual, personal supplies.  They are supplies for the whole room.  This makes me feel like I’m part of the school community and involved in his daily activities.  Same with assigning a family to bring snacks each week.  It fosters a sense of family and community.  Looking forward to school on Monday!
