One of my favorite books tells the story of Miss Rumphius, a woman who is charged with traveling to faraway places and making the world a more beautiful place. Alice is a real adventurer. She reads books, studies about other places, then sets off to explore. She does this with ease, but is uncertain how she will make this already amazing world even more beautiful. While admiring volunteer flowers, lupines, she decides to plant as many seeds as she can so that these flowers can be enjoyed by all. Her small, simple act creates a beautiful world that benefits all.
In a way, this is Maria Montessori’s story too. She studied something that she loved, traveled all over to keep her message of hope for children alive and, without a doubt, planted seeds where ever she went.
Inspired by the vision of Dr. Montessori and the story of the Lupine Lady, we have created a school where making the world a better place is a natural part of learning and growing. It is a special environment where seeds of knowledge, independence and compassion are planted and cultivated.
Nurturing your child in a quality Montessori setting and making the world more beautiful – the Lupine pledge.
