Educating From The Heart Curriculum
Our Montessori based curriculum Educating From the Heart is designed to help children develop a mindset that will empower them to live happy, healthy, and fulfilling lives. We do this by teaching and nurturing the qualities of compassion, respect, generosity, forgiveness, courage, and patience, and by cultivating a classroom environment rich in opportunities to practice and develop these qualities. An integration of Montessori, Holistic Education, and the Creating Compassionate Cultures Curriculum, Educating From the Heart is designed to ignite and nourish the desire to be kind and wise in the hearts of children, and to bring awareness to the practices of mindfulness, gratitude, and personal responsibility.
More so than ever, our world needs competent, conscious, courageous, and independent thinkers who know how to live responsible, meaningful lives. Traditional forms of education are great for teaching us what to think, but fall short in teaching us how to think about ourselves and the world around us. We encourage both a love for learning and a love for life in an environment where children are free to explore their particular talents and interests. We believe that introducing the youngest members of our community to the path of life-long learning and self-exploration is the key to building a happy, healthy world.
