“We especially need imagination in science. It is not all mathematics, nor all logic, but it is somewhat beauty and poetry.”– Maria Montessori
In Montessori, science is introduced to children at a young age with subjects like botany and zoology. Children have a natural desire to explore what they see. We provide various opportunities for the child to study and observe their environment, through gardening, nature walks, and care of animals.
At Arbor View Montessori children learn science by experiencing life. Our preschool classroom and teachers create an environment for the child that encourages the child’s own anxious scientific curiosity, with absolute respect for the child to observe natural phenomena. This helps the child lift the veil and discover fascinating secrets and create within a love for the truths of nature.
