Distance Learning at Aidan
Aidan Montessori School has been actively working on our distance learning plans given the suspension of in-person education. Distance learning will begin on Monday, March 30 and the plans for each classroom are now available.
Montessori education, more than most approaches to education, heavily depends on the learning environment and the Montessori materials in the classroom. Therefore, the education that our teachers stand ready to deliver online seeks to be in congruence with Montessori principles while recognizing the challenges this presents in the home environment. The teachers have been working to identify activities in which the children can engage should they be confined to their homes for short- or long-term periods. On a day-to-day basis, all students in our school will receive learning activities in which they may engage.

The School recognizes that not all families may access Aidan’s distance learning curriculum due to their personal situations, but Aidan Montessori School will continue to operate as a community and regularly provide education opportunities to all of our children. We will also continue to offer ongoing support to families and update our Coronavirus Information Page as updates arise.
