October 2017 Newsletter


fall feastMuch like the farmers harvest their crops; we are now gathering the children together to see the delightful fruit that each one possesses. 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.


Fire Prevention Week – Was October 9th – 13th. All week we will be worked on fire safety skills. The Fire Department visited Dover Montessori October 10th! The truck parked in front of our school and the firemen demonstrated how they fight fires dressed in the appropriate gear. Stop, Drop and Roll!!!
