Montessori Article from the Wall Street Journal

We saw this article from the Wall Street Journal a few weeks ago and wanted to share it. "The Montessori Mafia" ran in the April 5 issue of the Wall Street Journal and talks about the benefits of the Montessori learning method.
"Perhaps it’s just a coincidence that Montessori alumni lead two of the world’s most innovative companies. Or perhaps the Montessori Mafia of can provide lessons for us all even though it’s too late for most of us to attend Montessori."
This is also a reminder that Blue Heron School, a nature-based Montessori early learning center at Squam Lakes Natural Science Center, is now accepting applications for the 2011/2012 school year.

The school combines a child-focused Montessori approach with daily outdoor experiences in a stimulating learning atmosphere. Children have freedom to explore their own interests, particularly outdoors, and become independent and self-confident. Children learn to be responsible for their environment and to treat others with respect, forming a close and supportive community. The school operates September to June, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Find out more.
