Community partnerships play an important role in teaching our students how they are linked to the community and their world. In Montessori, this concept is referred to as ‘cosmic education.’ The purpose of cosmic education is to teach children an awareness of their interdependence with all things.
At Montessori Academy, we understand that our early learning services are an important point of connection to the wider community. Through community partnerships, we empower our students, staff and families with greater access to invaluable information, resources, and support systems.
In effect, these partnerships lead children to develop a sense of belonging, personal identity, and connectedness to the world around them. Therefore, Montessori Academy views community partnerships as an important aspect of our education programs, and an essential part of how we contribute to the communities in which we live and work.
