From the Director:
Our teachers are facilitators who know that children realize their potential for growth by exploring their world and allowing their interests to lead them to ask their own questions and to seek their own answers. Children at Monteverde learn the way that children have always learned best, by interacting with their environment and conversing with each other and the adults around them. In other words, they play. They play in the sandbox and the garden and converse while sitting under the trees. In this way they begin to observe and appreciate the natural world. They play dress-up, house, 'going out to dinner' and 'going to work', as they make sense of the adult world. They play in the book corner as they cuddle up with a teacher for a story and then, in turn, 'read' to their doll or their friend. <p>Extracted from Monteverde School's website (3/15/06).
