New (School) Year, New Beginnings

Posted by Ms. Doubra on Wednesday, July 27, 2016,

Hello Family and Friends,

            It has been a while! I hope you have been enjoying our Facebook postings, which have been the focus for some time. I wanted to take a moment to revisit two key questions: Who are we, and what is it that we do? 

Who are we?

We are a faith-based community of students, teachers, families, and parishioners working together to ensure that all of our students acquire the skills and abilities necessary to steer them into becoming dynamic citi...

2014 Update

Posted by Ms. Doubra on Tuesday, January 21, 2014,
     In 2000 whilst going through a bumpy period in my life I stumbled on this concept of Montessori. What was it and what was it all about. After investing in formal training I discovered "the best thing ever". Initially it was odd. "Freedom of movement", free choice,etc, etc. Education, I once thought, was structured and strictly outlined. What was this idea that children could do whatever they wanted and learn in the process? It was alien to my upbringing, along with all that i had learned...

Growth and Change As The School Year Approaches!

Posted by Ms. Doubra on Friday, August 9, 2013,

     "The secret of good teaching is to regard the child's intelligence as a fertile field in which seeds may be sown, to grow under the flaming heat of imagination" - Dr. Maria Montessori 
     

     As the end of summer draws near and the new school year begins, we remember the little gems that have moved on to glisten in new territories. We anticipate the growth of those returning and the hopes we have for the new children joining us this year. Our work with the children is like gardening...

Wow! Time has flown!

Posted by Doubra on Tuesday, January 22, 2013,
     2013 has started off great for Queen of Peace Children's House. All of the children have returned older, more inquisitive, and even more excited about school. We just finished our 100th day of school celebration and the children along with their families produced great displays of the value of 100. Our garden did quite well, and soon we will be planting our spring garden. The playground's refurbishment has been a great success, and the children are enjoying exploring the new equipment. W...

What A Great Start To The New School Year!

Posted by Ms. Doubra on Friday, August 17, 2012,
     As we approach our 2nd week of school it has been an absolute joy to watch the children purposefully and enthusiastically exploring and enjoying "the works" on the shelves.
    It was wonderful to watch the returning children heading straight to the classroom to explore once they had greeted the staff.
     We are starting off great here at the Children's House. This is going to be another educational and exciting year. Montessori education affords each child the opportunity to continuou...

Mother's Day

Posted by Ms. Doubra on Wednesday, May 16, 2012,

I hope all the Mother's had a great Mother's day celebration on Sunday. 


On Friday as the children prepared for Carline I quickly reminded them to be a blessing to their mothers and make breakfast for them and generally be extra helpful.  Well, everyone seemed quite receptive until one of the little boys looking rather puzzled asked " Ms Doubra, does that mean we have to do the laundry"? 


Please feel free to like us on facebook. Queen of Peace Children's House Montessori.
