There is a growing understanding that our current institutions, including educational institutions, are not concentrating the world’s most persistent questions: What is a commitment to ecological well-being? How can we foster authentic social justice? How should our culture address violence? How can schools better understand alienation? How can education provide meaning and inspiration for students?
Great Beginnings goes to great lengths to understand and address the new social reality for the next generation. Educational programs, which have so much impact on the ability to effectively deal with these issues, have a particularly strong obligation in this regard.
Our school strives to create an educational environment with a commitment addressing these issues, and setting this foundation by bringing a sense of community – local, regional and global – to the learning process. Additionally, Great Beginnings provides an excellent environmental education program to promote an understanding of the inter-connectedness of the natural world, including the care for something other than ourselves, and the mindfulness of a larger world.
Great Beginnings’ Montessori curriculum includes a nature-based, hands-on learning opportunity for children. Children at Great Beginnings spend significant time in outdoor settings, where they can play, learn, explore and experience the natural world around them. Great Beginnings provides opportunities for children to develop their physical and mental health, deep connections with nature, and strong ties to their surrounding community in a safe, nurturing and positive environment.
