A Statement of Purpose, A Draft

Learning Machine

Learning through Senses

I have been taking time this summer to reflect on our school’s purpose statement. Below is a draft that came out a brain storming session.  Reading it makes me so excited to be a part of Evergreen!

Children are learning machines, naturally.  Their minds are absorbent; they thirst for knowledge and understanding.

 At Evergreen School, by using proven Montessori methods, we free children to learn the natural way.  Senses come alive: touch, movement, language, sight, sound and music are part of their everyday experience. Our students have choice in their work and a sense of control of their lives. The result? Children experience a stress-free classroom, develop a greater ability to concentrate and an increased sense of independence and self-sufficiency.

I would like to hear your thoughts and reflections.  Comments are welcomed…
