Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Maria Montessori observed children over a long period of time with the trained eye of a medical doctor/scientist and the heart of someone wanting to help humanity. She wondered: What do these children need and how can we help? Her life's work was devoted to the answering of these questions. And, on the basis of her findings, carefully designed environments for children have been created on nearly every continent. She determined that children need:
� respect for themselves, others, and the environment
� increasing independence
� gradual exposure to wider environments
� participation in their own culture
� opportunities to make decisions and solve problems
� intellectual growth through the availability of beautiful, ordered, and purposeful materials.
Trained, aware adults provide the link between the children and the environment and between the school and the parents. Each day and each school year bring changes, challenges and joys, as the Montessori School of Franklin is a community of people working and struggling together. There is laughter as well as tears as the daily quest to be humane and strong continues. As a leading Montessorian said, the Montessori curriculum is unfinished by design. Since there are no finished edges or limits on growth or life, there can be no limits or defined boundaries on Montessori"
