Little Gym visits Guidepost Montessori

The Importance of Movement!

  • Sunday January 13

  • 10:00AM–12:30PM

  • Guidepost Montessori at Spruce Tree

Need some weekend fun to get you out of the house and over the winter blues!? Maria Montessori observed that movement enhances learning. The Prepared Montessori Environment allows children to move freely around the classroom. They do not have an assigned seat, nor are they expected to ask permission to move about. Children choose an activity - they walk to its place in the classroom, pick it up, and carry it to a table or mat. Much work is done on small rugs on the floor. A student from a Montessori school said it best: "I like school because you can walk around the classroom and not sit in desks all day. You make your own snack... . We can choose our own work.

To honor the importance of movement the Little Gym will be visiting us on campus on January 13th from 10:00 am – 12:30 pm. During this time we will provide a 45 minute Little Gym tumble session (toddlers from 10:00 - 11:00 and Children's House ages 3-6 from 11:00-12:00). Snacks, refreshments, and a Montessori activity will also be provided. 

Come enjoy watching your children tumble around as you connect with new and familiar faces.
