Grace and Courtesy

Parkside Community School - Austin Texas Montessori School

If you’ve spent any time around a Montessori classroom, you’ve probably heard the phrase “Grace and Courtesy.” You may be wondering why we go out of our way to identify it as something special. Simply put, grace and courtesy is all about helping children to understand polite social norms. This one-pager from Montessori Thrive explains how they learn and practice these behaviors through lessons and modeling.
