Music teachers Norah Wadsen and Mr. Mitnick led the Infant, Toddler and Primary children, and their parents and grandparents, at a morning Sing Along. The children danced and sang and enjoyed this special event. Mrs. Wadsen sang songs from the Music Together curriculum, incorporating small and large movement pieces that allow the children to feel the rhythm in their bodies by jumping, climbing and crawling. She also sang some quieter lullabies. Mr. Mitnick sang some songs with help from the third year Primary students, as well as a brand new song from his upcoming musical –The Montessori Story!
It was a fun time to come together and start the day in an upbeat way!
The Montessori Method of education, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, is a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood.
