January 6th is an awesome day for many reasons:
* it's my birthday
* it's the day that the visionary Maria Montessori opened her first classroom in Rome, Italy
* AND we celebrate one year of existence of The Montessori School in Curaçao!
The Montessori School is the first authentic Montessori school in Curaçao and provides a much needed alternative to the traditional school system. Me and my team worked hard behind the scenes for many years to make this vision a reality and it's amazing to see how the kids are thriving. This year also happens to be the 150th anniversary of Maria Montessori's birth. Many causes for celebration!
The Montessori School will celebrate by doing what we do best: bring Montessori to families. We plan to organize parent education classes and workshops, classes for teachers in a traditional school setting who want to learn more about the Montessori method and add to our scholarship fund so that we can offer more families the opportunity to give their child the gift of Montessori.
Help us celebrate by donating whatever amount - large or small - you can spare. Although giving the gift of Montessori is reward enough, donors get a nifty email with fun updates once a year.
