HOLIDAY CELEBRATIONS
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
Celebrating Holidays and Festivals Is an Exciting Study of Our Heritage and Traditions

“An education capable of saving humanity is no small undertaking; it involves the spiritual development of man, the enhancement of his value as an individual, and the preparation of young people to understand the times in which they live.” – Maria Montessori

Holidays

Holidays are a special time for the children. They enjoy the celebration and joyous activities that surround these festive times.

Learning the history of the holidays brings knowledge and intrigue to these special days. We focus on enjoying realistic aspects and the spirit of the holiday or season. For example, we may study the coming of Fall, cats, spiders, bats and skeletons for Halloween, in a natural and educational way, without scaring the children with ghosts and witches.  We are careful not to contradict the holiday traditions your family celebrates at home.

Our celebrations are an exciting time for the children, filled with feasts, art, music and fun!
