Imagine a kinder world—a world that is free of violence and greed, a world that is free of poverty, homelessness, hunger, and war. Imagine a sustainable world where people treat each other and all beings with empathy and compassion, and everyone is able to live a healthy, purposeful, and fulfilling life. As parents, the Heärt Montessori founders envisioned this kind of world for their children and considered how they might begin to create this reality. In their vision of a peaceful world, they imagined a farm school—a holistic educational experience that connects children to the natural world and that is rooted in empathy, compassion, and peace along with core academics. Thus was born Heärt Montessori, a model school that encourages students to manifest the most exquisite version of themselves. The founders, like five fingers of a hand, have worked tirelessly to collaboratively create this compelling school intended to empower and delight parents and children alike to bring their vision of peace to a nearer reality locally and globally.
Why, How, What?
Why are we doing this?
Everything we do is with the purpose of encouraging students to manifest the most exquisite version of themselves through intuition, empathy, and compassion. Empathy for one’s self, fellow beings, and the planet. We believe this empowers children to be global peacemakers ready to make the world a more beautiful, just, and peaceful place.
How are we doing this?
We do this by implementing the Montessori philosophy, which honors the unique nature of each child. We honor each child by nurturing and encouraging inquiry and discovery based learning, critical thinking, conflict resolution skills, grace, and courtesy.
What are we doing?
We are a Montessori school providing a cosmic education with a holistic curriculum of core academics. We place an emphasis on self-reliance, autonomy, self-esteem, and self-awareness fostering a community and environment of empathy, compassion, and peace.
