This month Elementary students had a blast in a portable planetarium exploring Mars and learning about the challenges of spaceflight, exploring the solar system and what lurks beyond Neptune. www.astronomyinaction.com

Montessori schools are designed to prepare children for both academic success and for life. It is not the adult who shapes the child, it is the child, who through experience, creates an adult human being.
Montessori teachers facilitate the natural process of learning. There is a connection between one’s sense of self, being open to new ideas, and experience to learn.
Montessori schools work on academic excellence and character development. Teachers follow the child, stay committed to providing guidance in an enriched environment, and help the child learn to his/her fullest potential.
Join us for our Casa information session to discuss the planes of development, the years after Casa, and what you can do at home to best support your child.
Please RSVP your attendance at your earliest convenience.
We are so pleased to be participating in our Upcoming ‘Light the Day’ ceremony at our Fall Festival.
We look forward to seeing you all at
3:00 p.m. on Friday, October 18th.
We have officially begun our fundraising campaign for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada, and hope you can all help us reach our goal. As you know, this organization is near and dear to our hearts here at Dearcroft. Please take a minute to watch this special message from Lia.
We are inspired by our students each and everyday. They demonstrate such depth of creativity, kindness, and strength, that we are constantly left in awe. Thanking you for taking a minute to watch this wonderful video by one of our Junior High students who continues to reminds us all of how precious life is, and that we can all find ways to help others.

Join us for the Language/Culture Casa Curriculum Information Session
Wednesday, October 2nd, 2019
2:15 p.m.- 3:15 p.m.
Mrs. Campbell, Director of Programming, along with Casa and Toddler teaching staff, will be hosting Casa Curriculum Sessions for Dearcroft parents in order to provide more information on the Montessori approach to the core curriculum areas in our Casa program.
Maria Montessori once said the child has a mind able to absorb knowledge. The child has the power to teach himself. Every child is born with the potential to create language and children absorb language unconsciously and through the child, language passes from generation to generation. We as the adults must realize the importance of language and give the child an opportunity to create and explore with language. We must understand that language is not the method of teaching, because it is the child who develops it, we must help children love language so they will enjoy it.
This important information is why we are inviting you to attend our Casa Curriculum Session on Language/Culture – to find out how language and culture is taught in a Montessori environment and why it works.
Please mark in your calendars all three Casa Curriculum Sessions:
2. Wednesday, October 2nd – Language/Culture
3. Wednesday, October 16th – Practical Life/Sensorial/Developmental Milestones
