Conference Update

When social relations are applied to the functioning of the whole school, they become the basis for community life and go well beyond the grace and courtesy of practical life in the Children's House. The Montessori school must convey its perspective on child development with the paramount concept of respect for the child’s personal dignity while being sensitive to the parent’s own view of their child. This is best felt, not stated, when all teachers, administrators, and students model graceful and courteous social relations. This includes but is not limited to conflict resolution, discussions and seminars, self-expression, meeting decorum, special events, hospitality to school visitors, adults listening when children talk, and children listening when adults talk. Grace and courtesy comes from within, so it is presented as a fundamental lesson in life and emphasis is placed on the art of living sociably in a modern culture where polite interactions are sometimes forgotten.
