The new classroom at UUSRF is for preschool students aged 3-6 and centers around Growth Mindset; both younger and older children have a chance to develop a growth mindset by observing all three years of the learning process in one classroom. Watching younger students progress from one material to the next teaches older students the value of practice and hard work.
Montessori is a method of education based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play. In Montessori classrooms children make creative choices in their learning, while the classroom and the highly trained teacher offer age-appropriate activities to guide the process. http://www.heartlandmontessori.org/
