“I agree with Stacia Tauchner who said, ‘We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget he or she is someone today’ We all want the best for our children but sometimes in preparing for the future, we forget their current needs. That is what I love about Montessori; it is able to meet children where they are. Children come to us with vast differences in skills but the program can deliver a unique experience based on the developmental needs of each child.”
