Outdoor Enviroment

“Because our society has endangered the life of a whole planet, and perhaps the universe itself, by our disrespect for the laws of nature, Montessori’s approach to nature has special significance for our culture. Montessori regarded man’s interdependence with nature as both physical and spiritual.”
-Paula Polk Lillard (Montessori-A Modern Approach)

Manhattan Academy has a beautiful outdoor environment where children are free to explore the great outdoors during our Montessori work period. Students will have the opportunity to watch butterflies emerge, harvest fruits and vegetables, search for birds and other animals, and experience both physical and life science in a hands-on way!
