Read the latest edition of Cornerstones in its entirety
"As a parent you may contemplate how to instill a sense of wonder and understanding in
your child about their place in this world. How can you guide them towards an appreciation of the vastness of the universe while also instilling in them the significance of the here and now. Dr. Maria Montessori asked this same question and through her scientific observation and study of children she developed what has become known as the Montessori Method of Education. While Montessori tackles all the basic elements of education you would find in a traditional school setting like math, language, and science it also aims to develop a child's sense of self and their place in the world. Maria coined the phrase Cosmic Education in which a central component is the consideration of the whole child physically, spiritually, emotionally, as well as academically. A common question that we receive in the world of Montessori is "What is Montessori?" The aim of this edition is to investigate and uncover the core of the Montessori Philosophy: Cosmic Education."
