At Glen Abbey Montessori School, we firmly believe that in our students’ academic, developmental and emotional growth does not stop when they leave school for the day. Indeed, we strongly encourage that parents and teachers work together so that our students have the best environment (both at school and at home) within which to grow and learn.
I dreamed I stood in a studio
And watched two sculptors there,
The clay they used was a young child’s mind
And they fashioned it with care.
One was a teacher:
The tools she used were books and music and art;
One was a parent
With a guiding hand and gentle loving heart.
And when at last their work was done,
They were proud of what they had wrought.
For the things they had worked into the child
Could never be sold or bought!
And each agreed she would
have failed if she had worked alone.
For behind the parent stood the school,
And behind the teacher stood the home!
