We have begun our third full week of school. Things are settling down and routines are coming alive. During the first several weeks of school, considerable energy is spent facilitating the safe space necessary for the children to find their footing and feel comfortable learning. If you are interested in learning more about this period known as the Montessori Normalization Period, you can read our blog post or talk to your child’s teacher. The Normalization Period is well worth the time and energy as it pays substantial dividends over the remainder of the year.
