Montessori Matters

February 9, 2018


From a child's first words, to their first steps; from learning to drive a car, to going off to college; All of these things foster independence in our children and a lesson in trust as parents. A foundation in Montessori Education, independence is woven into the curriculum at every level. Lessons are introduced and supported until the child has gained mastery and can then help support others in their learning.

"I can do it myself,"....begins in practical life as the child learns the wonders of the world around them and how they gain confidence and independence in tasks at home and in school.

Pennies for People Helps Salvation Army

On behalf of Montessori School of Anderson, Mrs. Knisley presents a check to Ms. Stacy Holden of the Salvation Army. The $150 check represents the amount of change we collected for Pennies for People during the holidays. Ms. Holden was very appreciative of our donation and said the funds may be used to help the growing number of homeless families with school-age children in Anderson County. She was impressed with the way we collected our "pennies" and that we are using these funds to care for others. Thanks again to all students and families who contributed to Pennies for People!
