Preparing Children for a Life of Caring

Parkside Community School - Austin Texas Montessori School

“Today we need an education that is about human development, about all the great things that humans do, because knowledge is not enough. It is about looking at children and saying: with what we’ve got, let’s create something that’s going to help them flourish.” Watch this beautiful video created in collaboration between Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) and BrightVibes on how a Montessori approach to education prepares children for a life of caring.

Parkside Community School
“At Parkside, the respectful way teachers treat and talk to the kids not only shapes their expectations for other relationships in their lives, it also sets them up for a positive experience of learning. There’s a balance of understanding and support, and the benefit of being known by caring, responsive people. We may live in a big city, but Parkside creates a loving, small town feel for every member of the community.
