wBees Forest School is a vibrant Montessori program that nurtures connections between our children and our school community by offering a warm and engaging learning environment. We foster the development of the whole child through a nature-based curricula and an emotionally-responsive practice thus leading our children to become empathetic and connected members of their community and beyond.
Through the Montessori work cycle, children become independent and self-motivated learners. Through careful observations, day after day, teachers scaffold each student's individual learning experiences. Children have the freedom to choose their learning experiences from the different curricular areas in our Montessori classroom thus giving them a true voice in their own educational journey. Our Peace curriculum and care of the environment creates a beautiful environment where each child respects not only the materials of the classroom but their peer community. wBees Forest School believes in following the natural rhythms of nature whether by bringing in many natural elements into our vibrant and green classroom, engaging in bulb plantings in the nearby green spaces, or by raising baby chicks from incubated eggs. By teaching children to care for small things, we teach children their place in the wider community and world. wBees Forest School believes that there can be a harmonious relationship between Montessori principles and the wonderful world of play. We believe that balancing a Montessori work cycle with collaborative play in sensory bins, building materials, and a child-led play cycle out of doors provides for the development of the whole child. Work helps children develop a sense of order and concentration while play allows for the development of social emotional and language development. We truly believe we have built a magical place for our children and cannot wait for you to explore it for yourselves!
