On August 31st, Montessori educators, students, and families celebrated the 150th anniversary of Dr. Maria Montessori’s birth. Dr. Montessori was a pioneer, a visionary, and laid the foundation for a shift in education and the way the world views children. In particular, she believed children create a path to peace for all mankind. Each day, we strive to live up to the ideals she outlined for us. It is up to each of us to keep her spirit alive and remember why we commit ourselves to her method of education. Whether the role we play in life of a child is that of parent, teacher, mentor, or friend, she has entrusted us to carry on her legacy. By choosing a Montessori education for your children, you have joined together with people all across the globe who believe as Dr. Montessori did, “Within the child, lies the fate of the future”.

It is especially important during these trying times to hold onto her vision. When the days are long and the questions seem to outnumber the answers, just look to our name - Keystone Montessori. Dr. Maria Montessori’s vision is the “keystone” which holds all the other pieces of our school together. The strength of our community combined with our commitment to Montessori helps us to fulfill our school’s mission to inspire in children a passion for a lifelong love of learning in an environment which nurtures independence, creativity, confidence and tolerance while developing a sense of responsibility for self and community. 

In honor of Dr. Montessori’s birthday, please take a moment to read some interesting facts about our founder, and always remember, “Peace is what every human being is craving for, and it can be brought about by humanity through the child” ~ Dr. Maria Montessori
