It's true. I'm going to school tomorrow: Montessori School.
It's now one-hundred years since Dr Maria Montessori (left) established her first school, a Casa dei Bambini, in the slums of Rome, and from there it spread right around the world. The Montessori Centenary website celebrates the achievement.
Right around the world this year the centenary of that happy event is being celebrated. New Zealand Montessori schools around the country celebrate tomorrow by opening their doors -- why not join them?
You can find what your local Montessori school is doing, along with more information about Montessori education, at the Montessori Association (NZ) press release on the centenary events.
As for me, I'll be in Torbay joining in at the Titoki Montessori School celebration. Why not join me?
