In the field

Lessons learned in context are the lessons that are remembered and internalized.  At Cornerstone, as it should be in every Montessori school, work in the field is an integral part of school life.  Special field trips relative to curriculum are commonplace at developmentally appropriate levels.  Trips to the grocery store or other types of errands may be part of project planning.  Older students may perform musical productions at nursing homes or serve lunch at a soup kitchen.  In all cases, “going out” provides opportunities for learning in a way that is unique to Montessori education.
