Montessori Bilingual Academy in Calgary, Canada
We see children as capable human beings as well as co-creators of knowledge who are ready to experience many opportunities to learn, re-think and also re-learn concepts as well as construct new ideas with creativity and freedom. Our image of the child is one of a confident, capable person.
Our school is not a place of transmission of knowledge; rather it is an environment that allows the child to be a producer of culture and knowledge—the child is seen as knowledge maker.
“The vision of an “education based on relationships” focuses on each child in relation to others and seeks to activate and support children’s reciprocal relationships with other children, family, teachers, society, and the environment.” (Loris Malaguzzi, 1993)
