Dr. Maria Montessori’s Birth Anniversary Celebrations

In any Montessori, August 31st annually is almost a sacred day as it is Dr. Maria Montessori’s birth date. In our Montessori too it is celebrated with joy and fervor.

This year we shifted our focus from just a celebration to instilling in our children the joy of giving. We asked the children to bring in a colouring book and a box of crayons wrapped simply in a sheet of newspaper to be handed over to a NGO Soaring Kites foundation.

The children sat around Dr. Maria Montessori’s photograph, sang a birthday song and happily took home a yummy cupcake.
