Spring Festival 2016

Few events capture the essence of Evergreen like Spring Festival. Thanks to our families, parents’ association (ESPA), teachers and children for making Saturday such a success.  In addition to the wonderful musical performances led by Ms.Garry, the whole event reflected what makes Evergreen wonderful– the relaxed, joyful feel of the community was tangible. It wouldn’t be that way without everyone’s skill, dedication, support and teamwork. Thank you bake sale bakers! View pictures.

Welcome to Esteemed Elders’ Day! The benefits of being an Esteemed Elder starts with the job description: Your first responsibility—maybe your only responsibility—is to enjoy spending time with your grandchild.  You exist to share all the joys of learning, growing and discovering the world.  And (this is a big deal) at the end of the day, you can still come and go as you please.

They are ravenous to learn things, to do things and to figure things out (not justhungry for fruit and junk food). Second, our children have been warmly nestled in cozy classroom cocoons—with caring teachers in a safe, nurturing place to learn.

Learning About Learning

One of Maria Montessori’s most fundamental contributions to the field child development was the high value she put on observing a child. She once said, “When dealing with children there is greater need for observing than of probing.” Through meticulous observation, you can better understand the child and learn how best to aid his development. She understood that rigorous observing was far superior to the kinds of standardized testing that has overrun our system of public education.
