“The child should live in an environment of beauty.” ~Dr. Montesssori
We are thrilled to be launching our first big fundraising campaign! We are seeking donations HERE to help us stock the first primary classroom at Mi Casita with beautiful Montessori materials.
We’re sure some of you are curious as to why we’re ordering materials before we’ve even begun the final construction on the school building. The primary reason is that Montessori Outlet, the distributor we’re using to purchase our materials, tells us that materials begin to go on back order during the summer months when schools in the U.S. start ordering things for their classrooms. As it takes a solid month or more for shipments to reach Guatemala, we want to make sure our order is in one piece. This will certainly make less work for Shirley’s family in L.A. who is graciously handling the transport of a whole classroom worth of materials down to Guatemala. Sending our thanks to them!
The secondary reason, and probably more important one, is that you can’t have a Montessori classroom without Montessori materials! Please help us make this current campaign a success.
“The environment itself will teach the child, if every error he makes is manifest to him, without the intervention of a parent of teacher, who should remain a quiet observer of all that happens.” ~Dr. Montessori
