Dr. Maria Montessori was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize twice during her lifetime…
Thirty years after establishing her first classroom for pre-school aged children, “Casa di Bambini”, Maria Montessori delivered a series of lectures in which she implored the global community to consider introducing the Science of Peace to early childhood educational programs. At Elements Montessori, we share Dr. Maria Montessori’s philosophy that peacefulness – in its purest form – is an innate, spiritual quality common at birth to all of humanity.
Elements Montessori recognizes early childhood education as a means by which to prepare children to live peacefully as adults. Dedicated to the vision of a future marked by environmental stewardship and peaceful living, we offer our children the opportunity to mature with an appreciation for social, ecological, and global interconnectedness. We endeavor that as our children make their way into the world, they find harmony, joy and peace in all their many relationships…from the classroom to the cosmos.
