Past Parent Testimonial:
I wanted to let you know that my son and daughter have settled in well at SACS and Springfield – and we have the overwhelming feeling that the
grounding they got at MMES has prepared them beautifully for their new “big school” environments.
They are happy to go to school in the mornings, seem to be coping well with the work and are making friends easily.
Thank you to you, Meeghan, Adele and the whole team at MMES for all you did for our family between 2014 and 2017.
All the best for 2018.
Of all things, love is the most potent – Maria Montessori
Maria Montessori 1870-1952
The phrase “spiritual renewal and progress of humanity through the child” is indicative of what Maria Montessori felt was the essential task of her life. Universally she is renowned as a physician who became an educational innovator – a woman who removed rigid benches from classrooms and replaced them with movable tables and chairs. In the comfortable environment, filled with ingenious materials of her own design, she invited children 3 through to 6, to select work according to their own interest, thus taking advantage of their own sensitive periods for learning. This is how the world knows Montessori, but how many know that behind all her educational efforts was her continuous desire to reform humanity – to uncover the true nature of the child – in order, ultimately, to bring peace and harmony to the world?
