Virtues Project

The Virtues Project is a positive, holistic program which is designed to bring out the best in children and adults. Through daily interactions simple strategies are used within the curriculum to help children to remember who they really are, and to know that the purpose of life is to have a life of purpose. Virtues are the content of our character. They exist within each child in potential. The project is a way to awaken these already existing virtues, allowing each child to act on the best within them.

Montessori Approach

Montessori is a system of education that is based on a child’s developmental need for freedom within limits, as well as a carefully prepared environment that guarantees exposure to materials and experiences. Everything a child sees, listens to, feels and tastes enhances the education of their mind.

The Montessori method fosters through a prepared environment:

  • Self-directed learning in a whole learning environment
  • Classroom materials and social setting is supportive of the child
  • Together, the Directress and child form a relationship based on trust and respect that fosters self-confidence and a willingness to try new things
  • Materials are multi-sensory, sequential and self-correcting, thus facilitate learning
  • Directress functions as a designer of the environment, resource person, role model, demonstrator, record-keeper and observer of each child’s behavior and growth

Goals of a Montessori classroom

  • Developing a positive attitude toward learning
  • Helping each child develop self-confidence and independence
  • Assisting each child in building concentration
  • Fostering an abiding curiosity
  • Developing habits of initiative and persistence
  • Fostering inner security and sense of order in the child
  • Supports child’s individuality, and unique learning style
