Montessori Cooperative School

Some of you may know that one of my secret passions is teaching.  I go back and forth from the idea of the value of a school that offers wisdom and thoughtful materials for a child to learn from to straight up homeschooling.  I wish that we could afford to dedicate every minute of our time to Emilia and homeschooling, but this is not our reality.

Luckily, the Montessori Cooperative School is.  A  few women and I got together to start this little grass-roots school, that offers children Montessori experience coupled with beautiful outdoor exploration on the campus’s 22 acres of marsh, hiking trails, creek, and open land.

I am thrilled about learning Montessori methods, and how beautiful the experience is.  Montessori has many very intentional goals, one of them being to help teach children to be kind and peaceful.
Children learn through hands-on experience, investigation, and research.  We have many exciting projects planned, including cooking various dishes in the slow cooker (the children will do cutting and measuring).  Our job is to guide the children, to provide them with work that will engage them and allow them to learn.
