The Dancing Moose Difference

Sunday, 25 August 2013 05:02 Published in Prospective Parents

What makes DMMS different from other preschools, primary schools, and daycares?

Montessori education focuses on the whole child. It involves sound educational practices that build upon a child's knowledge with activities that are interesting and engaging. Children learn to approach learning creatively, observing their surroundings in ways that challenge what others may see as mundane and commonplace. The Dancing Moose Montessori classroom is filled with beautiful materials designed to teach concrete lessons that precede abstract conceptualization. The environment is conducive to freedom and spontaneity because ethics of peace, order, and respect are upheld in the classroom community.

If it speaks to you, we welcome your comments, thoughts and stories as we go. Maria Montessori wrote, “We are the sowers – our children are those who reap. We labor so that future generations will be will be better and nobler than we are.” This book is a fantastic reminder of why we are Montessori, and the greatness we see in our children. We are looking forward to this blog community and hearing your thoughts. Thanks for joining us!
