“The child who has felt a strong love for his surroundings and for all living creatures, who has discovered joy and enthusiasm in work, gives us reason to hope that humanity can develop in a new direction.” – Maria Montessori

Our Beloved Pets

The children absolutely adore the pets here at Alden. Many of our sweet animals are rescues or donated to the school. They are so happy to have a loving home. The children nurture them, feed them, and care for them. The animals, in return, give the children a sense of peace and pride in caring for our fellow creatures.
