"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, planting seeds, nurturing, and looking forward to the growth and blossoming of what has been planted. This summer we renovated, re-evaluated, and ventured into new territories. Now, with great expectation and anticipation, we look forward to the start of our new school year starting next week.


     The children often come in quiet and unaware. As they explore, experience and become empowered we see the development and growth of each persona taking shape. The joy of knowing that you have been a part of this process is invaluable. The dynamics with the parents with whom we have been blessed has been outstanding. The parents continue to go the extra mile and remain committed and supportive throughout their season with us. Even when disagreement or indifference arise we return to the root of our connection, the hand of God and the process of the Montessori curriculum which we are all committed to. In a world with new technology and all the evolution of society and its processes, here at the Children’s House we are committed to building individuals of integrity, love of learning and a passion for living. The prepared environment and all that exists within it and around it is in the interest of and for the benefit of the children. Here at Queen of Peace Children’s House Montessori, for the last 10 years and for the future, we strive daily to assist in the process of enabling and empowering the children with which we are blessed. Now, we look forward excitedly to the 2013-2014 school year!

“Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment.” – Dr. Maria Montessori
