We were delighted to re-open the doors of Century House Montessori School on 9th October 2017 after interruption from Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
CHMS is hosting a special intervention and outreach programme called Montessori H.O.P.E. (Helping Others, Providing Education). This programme will continue to run for the duration of the term, our last day being 15th December 2017, after which we hope to resume our usual schedule. It is open to children aged 18 months to 12 years old. In true Montessori spirit we have opened our classrooms to the wider community through this special initiative. The programme description is as follows:
At CHMS we encourage children's natural inquisitiveness and creativity in a structured, safe environment to enable exploration and free thinking. This approach instills a love of knowledge, producing innovative, confident, critical thinkers and problems solvers. Children are experiencing a hands-on, fun, learning experience using Montessori materials. Our primary focus is Language and Math as well as basic lessons in the cultural subjects. They are also exploring Art, Music, Poetry, Sports, Baking and Gardening.
To instill a love of service our children are participating in community service activities through random acts of kindness as we all pull together and support others who are working so hard to rebuild our community. It is important to reassure our children and those around us that even in the light of the recent devastation to our islands their is HOPE.
