Le plaisir de travailler dans la terre.



Children indeed love flowers, but they need to do something more than remain among them and contemplate their colored blossoms. They find their greatest pleasure in acting, in knowing, in exploring, even apart from the attraction of external beauty.” Dr. Maria Montessori

Gardening activities are part of our Culture in English speaking countries curriculum. Much like their indoor work, the children work outdoors with child-sized tools and self-directed lesson boxes. Gardening is a wonderful way for children to connect with nature and nurture living things. It provides learning opportunities when studying parts of seeds, flowers and plants. Children love to dig in the dirt and get great exercise while doing so.

We are fortunate to have gardens where our children can be part of the growing process. Today the children picked up trash, mixed soil, learnt about worms and soil, observed sun and shade, listened to sounds and identified colors. Later we talked about the importance of composting, the role of worms and insects in nature, demonstrated to our students the life cycle of the garden with the help of Montessori materials.

These activities reinforce a respect for all living things and recognition that in a garden filled with millipedes, beetles, snails and slugs, mites, compost, earthworms, fungi, and bacteria, there is no such thing as garbage!”

Il reste des places pour les activités du mercredi en anglais. Vous pouvez inscrire votre enfant à mi-temps ou à plein temps. C’est vraiment un excellent moyen pour eux d’apprendre l’anglais dès le plus jeune âge et de façon ludique.
