Parent Information Night on Cosmic Education
The Elementary Teachers on Wednesday evening explained how Dr. Montessori believed that it is in the Elementary-aged child’s absolute best interest that we present knowledge in a way that conveys the interrelatedness and interdependence of the universe and thus assist children in their most fundamental need to form a personal framework to gather knowledge. We learned how subject matter is presented to inspire interest and independent thinking, while bringing to children’s consciousness the contribution they can make.

NEW HARTFORD — With only 10 students, the Montessori School of Greater Hartford’s campus at Millstream Farm is one of the smallest classrooms in Litchfield County. The campus, with classes for seventh through ninth graders, has been operating for six years on the 30-acre Millstream Farm, located on 741 Steele Road. The owner of the farm, Caren Ross, is also a teacher.
The program is very unique for students and much different than typical middle schools.
