Hershey Montessori School
Works Here: Hershey's staff care deeply for and respect children. My three children are challenged to make independent decisions, care for their peers, and care for the world around them. How many schools can say they nurture the spirit and potential of each individual child?
I believe the math materials are the most beautiful works in the classroom. When I observe my children in their classrooms or visit with them during Elementary or Children's House Family Nights, I want to learn how to use the materials. I wish I had learned math the Montessori way! As a student, I was taught math on paper with a pencil; at Hershey, the abstract process of math is the final step of a long series of exercises and presentations. To my children, math symbols represent very concrete ideas that they have physically manipulated; they fully understand and are learning what those symbols mean, how they work, and why.
My spouse and I are so grateful to partner with Hershey in our children's education journey!
