Chinese New Years is one of the most significant holidays in the Chinese culture. This year is the Year of the Pig. We had a blast during our celebration. We thank all the families that joined us. Our students learn dances and songs to celebrate the New Year. We had a wonderful time celebration with our students, their family and prospective families. We are very proud of our students who practiced and performed. Some children practiced but did not want to perform, some did not want to perform at first but got up and joined in when the other children started. There are many factors involved in the child’s choice to perform or not, it is their choice to make, we respect and follow the children’s choices of the moment. That is how we Montessori!
