“I can do it myself.”
This is a welcomed phrase of self-confidence, self-discipline and self-awareness at Río Valley.
What does independence look like at Río Valley Montessori?
- “Care of Self” is a part of the Montessori Practical Life Curriculum where children do such things as dressing themself, washing their hands, brushing their hair & feeding themself
- Children have freedom within understood limits, where they decide how to spend their “work” period and free – play time
- “Care of Environment” is a part of the Practical Life Montessori Curriculum where children do things like water plants, set the table & clean the easel
- Children prepare and eat their snack when they are hungry; they pour their water when they are thirsty and they choose to work on a mat or at a desk; wherever they feel most comfortable executing their work!
We invite you to visit and see Río Valley independence in action!
