Guides encourage, redirect, and supervise as the child learns through their own personal motivation. They plan the environment in the interests of the children, and help children progress from one activity to the next. The guides track each child’s development to create a lesson plan that meet each child’s needs. We use the word “guide” in Montessori since the children teach each other and themselves and the adult is there to guide them towards their best selves.
Due to COVID-19 Puddletown School is currently operating an emergency child care center. Our elementary classes will be distance learning until our county meets the metrics defined by Governor Brown. Our Department of Education blueprint for reentry is here. Our protocols for Covid-19 in our preschool and elementary program can be found here. For information regarding enrollment for children ages 3-11 for the 20/21 school year and beyond, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
