Montessori Education Week at Casa de la Bella

Lead Guide and Head of School, Susan Dyrud MacDonald, and Toddler Guide Debbie Bar, made this week a bit extra special for the children. From trying new fruits such as kumquats to doing experimental planting of wheat grass to usher in
spring, the children reveled in all things new. This is the look of education.

Dr. Maria Montessori was quoted as saying: “Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment.” Casa de la Bella and the guides truly believe this and act in accordance with the teachings of Dr. Montessori’s brilliance and insight into the child.
