It has been a wonderful year so far at Frog Song Montessori Preschool. It has been especially fun this year to watch the children begin to see and feel like the classroom is their very own place to learn, work, explore and engage socially! As adults in the environment we try to foster this by sitting back as much as possible and allowing the children the space to take initiative. If we follow the children around and clean up after them then we take away the opportunity for them to spontaneously and independently do it themselves. We have seen a HUGE drive in the children to care for the classroom themselves and below are some photos to see what kinds of things they have been up to!
Fortunately we were able to open last fall with a small group of ten children! With our unique access to the outdoors we were able to open our classroom door and create a free flow situation from the indoor to the outdoor environments. The teachers and children alike have been thrilled to be in community together. After being closed for 6 months it was clear that being together was the best next step for.. EVERYONE! Take a look at the photos below to see for yourself!
Our 2019-20 school year has gotten off to a fantastic start! The children have been busy working, learning, exploring and creating…
We ended our 2019 with a delicious pancake pajama party! After a busy but cozy morning work period the children helped to cook and prepare a pancake feast, put all the tables and chairs together and clean up when we were all finished. The collective effort was a wonderful way to spend our last day before the two week winter break!
Thank you to all our families that came to last Saturdays work party. We got a lot of work done, including weeding, scraping the boat, buttoning up the play structure and making beautiful child sized picnic tables! It is so wonderful to be part of such a great community!
