"Establishing lasting peace is the work of education.”
Those words, spoken by Maria Montessori more than 75 years ago remain central to the focus of WMS and our work with children. When horrifying events occur, such as the ones in Atlanta this week, we are reminded of our focus - children and helping to prepare them for the world they will inherit as adults. Our work in the areas of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging coalesce around the Montessori philosophy and in taking actions to promote an understanding in children that every person must be fully included and experience a sense of belonging in all parts of our society, no matter their race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation or socio-economic class.
