Land and Livestock program welcomes chicks

Maria Montessori had a deep respect for the natural world. She believed the outdoor environment was an extension of the indoor classroom as it provides endless opportunities for experiential learning. That’s why at The Montessori School of Raleigh (MSR), students at all grade levels learn from nature every day through access to outdoor spaces as well as natural elements in their indoor spaces – like plants and small animals. In the Middle and Upper Schools, students engage in a land and livestock program that offers even more opportunities for students to access and learn from the natural world around them.
