Dover Montessori Country Day School
October 2013 Newsletter
Much like the farmers harvest their crops; we are now gathering the children together to see the delightful fruit that each one possess. Just as we nourish a plant, a child’s intelligence depends on the order, richness, variety and appropriateness of his environment. Your child will experience the sensitive periods for learning at any given moment. Our tasks, as guides in the classroom, are to promote the budding and flourishing of each child in view of their own uniqueness.
