The Magic of a Multi-age Classroom | 混龄班级的魔法

It’s difficult to believe that we are coming towards the end of another term and the academic school year. As it gets hotter and hotter, it would be true to say that the last few weeks of May are not the best to expect long attention spans in the classroom. The children’s bodies usually grow […]

The Work of The Child | 孩子的作品

Maria Montessori is often quoted as recognizing that “play is the work of the child.”   If we let the children play to their hearts’ desires, we will then be able to witness all the possibilities held within this basket. 我们经常引用玛利亚蒙特梭利的话“玩耍就是孩子的工作”。 “如果让孩子们去玩他们发自内心喜欢的活动,我们就能看到这个过程中所有的可能性。”     And what a privilege it has been to see firsthand some of these […]

Fun under the sun

For the past three weeks, our toddlers have explored so much about the world. First week of May, our lovely Qingdao turned pink with all those beautiful cherry blossoms. The weather also started to get warmer and we didn’t hesitate to walk around the campus with a basket in hand and improvise a cherry blossom collection. […]

Spring has Sprung in Peony Cottage | ‘绽放的春天’

“The child seeks for independence by means of work; an independence of body and mind.” ~‘The Absorbent mind’ – Dr. Maria Montessori. Working hours have been louder these past weeks, although children seemed busy, but the level of noise and energy inside them was higher. I’ve heard teachers sometimes name this excitement as “Spring Fever”. […]
