The life cycle of the Monarch Butterfly is a wonderful event for the children to experience. They witness one of the wonders of life as it happens, taking in the changes as the caterpillar grows, enters the various phases of metamorphosis and eventually turn into a butterfly. They gain so much from this experience: patience, observation, appreciation of life, beauty. This sparks their interest in other work around the classroom: writing, coloring, crafts, stories… This is how we Montessori.
We had such a wonderful time observing the Monarch first hand, we did not want you to miss out. We made a short video for you, enjoy! https://youtu.be/dkcXb6vZGXE
Have you wondered what Montessori Elementary School is? I am sure you have heard me mention that Tong Le will start an Elementary program in Sept 2021.
I would like to tell you more. I want to tell you how the child’s mind is changing from “What is this, What is that” to “Why does this work this way, How is this related to that”. I will tell you how we engage their new mind with stories, impressions, and big work.
I would also like to show you what an Elementary classroom looks like and why it is designed that way.
We have scheduled 2 presentations for your convenience. Sunday 3pm Monday 8pm
Join us during the time slot that works best for you.

It is with mixed emotions that we say goodbye to our 2019-2020 Graduates, Yohanna, Rouxin and Talia. It has been a wonderful a year facing challenges and overcoming them. We are very proud of them and every one of their friends.
Yohanna and Talia have been with our school since our humble beginnings in Federal Hill when they were only one and a half. It has been a privilege to see them grow and blossom over the past 5 years.
We send our love and support to all our graduate as they take their next step into 1st grade. Although we say goodbye now, we hope to hear from you soon. Please write, please visit. We would love to hear your stories.
The Year of the Rat is coming soon. In parts of China, it is customary to celebrate New Years Eve by making dumplings. Dumplings are made to resemble blocks of gold used in the old days. The custom signifies prosperity.
At 童乐, we learn about culture by experience. The children made dumplings at school and tasted their products too. Wish you prosperity my young friends, that’s gold you are eating.
