Adventures at the Art Gallery of Ontario

When the child goes out, it is the world itself that offers itself to him.” – Maria Montessori 

Another exciting adventure awaits two of our Upper Elementary students as they head to the #AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario)! This outing epitomizes the holistic Montessori approach, where students take the reins in all aspects of the journey. From planning and preparing for the visit to finalizing the details and extending invitations to the lucky accompanying adult, the entire process is orchestrated by these young learners.

The power of these going-out experiences extends far beyond the walls of the classroom. They are captivating learning opportunities that not only enhance students' knowledge and curiosity but also foster critical life skills. From budgeting and logistics to social etiquette and decision-making, our students are gaining invaluable real-world experience.

The #AGO outing is just one example of the many exciting features embedded in our dynamic Montessori Elementary Programs. These programs are designed to ignite curiosity, nurture independence, and instill a lifelong love for learning. We're incredibly proud of our students' initiative and the vibrant learning community that supports their growth.

As they embark on this artistic journey to the AGO, we wish them an enriching experience filled with inspiration and creativity. Here's to many more exciting going-out adventures in our Montessori journey!
