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.

I’ve heard teachers sometimes name this excitement as “Spring Fever”. […]

Building friendship

Here we go again! Few weeks have passed already since the last post, but here is more about the little ones of our school. Children continue mastering skills with activities that they already know. They are also showing curiosity for the new materials presented. Activities such as transferring water with a pipette, sponges or small pitchers are excellent to develop eye-hand coordination, precision of their grasping, first notions of math such as quantity, and concentration. These types of activities are self-corrected which means the child can see his/her mistakes and try to improve. These water […]

This reminds us of what a wonderful beginning we have had this year and how Peony Cottage children are truly growing together as a community.
