An Emphasis on Peace
Peace education is implicit in the Montessori curriculum and its manipulative materials. Peace is cultivated in the classrooms by combining the actual experience of peace with hands-on peace making skills, exercises in mindfulness and the intellectual academic activities leading to the understanding of peace. Lessons in Grace and Courtesy, use of the Peace Table (Children’s House) and Conflict Resolution (Elementary) give the children concrete ways to practice and model peace among themselves.
