Greatly Enhances a Child’s Ability to Learn Responsibility, Empathy and Compassion for Other Living Things

“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

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.
