school :: montessori in motion

I recently arranged with my daughter's preschool teacher to have my volunteering be an afternoon spent photo-documenting the classroom. It was such a treat to be a fly on the wall in the children's house (that's what Maria Montessori called preschool), watching these kids so competently and peacefully (well, mostly) going about their work.

Though I can't show photos with any faces of the students (other than my own kid), these images will give you a glimpse of how a Montessori classroom works for ages 3-6.
