Community Service

Children Changing Communities

The aim of such an education indicates the desire to contribute to the good of all, to share in this cosmic goodness. Maria Montessori

Service to others is an important part of the Montessori philosophy. As a school, we aim to serve those in our immediate neighborhood of the District of Columbia as well as members of our global community.

Each of the individual classroom communities nurtures an ethic of caring. Some classes, inspired by their students, undertake projects that evolve from particular natural disasters and/or special interests.

The Community Service Committee of the PA and the Aidan Program for Families organize charitable efforts throughout the year. Parents are encouraged to involve their children in these drives and events. We also encourage families to model generosity and to talk with and to read to their children about giving to others.
