The New School Montessori (TNSM)
3 Burton Woods Lane
At The New School Montessori, we have welcomed our students and families back with a dual participation model, offering both online and in-person classes to choose from. We are grateful for our spacious campus with its shaded woods, awning-covered decks and expanses of lawn, allowing for numerous open-air learning spaces.
Over the summer, we equipped our classrooms and HVAC systems with ionization units, UV technology, and with increased intake of fresh air. Both indoors and out, children of all levels work, eat and play in cohorts to minimize the number of people they interact with.
Dr. Maria Montessori has been an inspiration in this difficult time with her words from long ago still instructing us today, “It is necessary that the human personality should be prepared for the unforeseen, not only for conditions that can be anticipated by prudence and foresight or success in life depends in every case on self-confidence and the knowledge of one’s own capacity and many-sided powers of adaptation.”
Having prepared as well as we can for the unforeseen, we step forward into this new school year ready to adapt. We will respond to new learnings in science, to methods shared by others, and to ideas offered up by our incredibly inventive staff, students and families as we navigate with an abundance of care, caution and compassion in this pandemic situation.
