Fostering Community, Part 1: Summer Reunion
"There is a great sense of community within the Montessori classroom, where children of differing ages work together in an atmosphere of cooperation rather than competitiveness. There is respect for the environment and the individuals within it, which comes from experience within the community." - Maria Montessori
At OakHaven, we're grateful for our strong sense of community. The Montessori classroom naturally fosters this feeling of belonging, and we feel it's important to extend this outside the classroom environment.
Last Wednesday, OakHaven hosted its annual midsummer playground reunion - just 1 of 3 summer events we host to bring our community together. Every summer, we invite our families (current, incoming, and alum) to join us for a few hours on the playground to just spend time together. It's another opportunity to gather and connect. It's about community.
