Montessori in the Primary Years: Cosmic Education Explained to Parents

Event description

What is so special about Montessori education in the primary years? And what does Cosmic Education even mean? 

Whether your family is new to Montessori or has been involved for years, all parents and caregivers will be inspired by understanding how children learn in Montessori primary classrooms. 

In Montessori primary education, all curriculum areas are covered. However, Montessori delivers this content differently by providing a “Big Picture” to demonstrate how the sciences, art, history, language, mathematics, and geography are interrelated. This is called Cosmic Education, simply meaning “relating to the universe”. Cosmic Education is the unifying element of the Montessori curriculum for children aged 6-12 years, highlighting the interconnectedness of all subject areas. It is a fundamental aspect of holistic education as it helps the students to understand their place in the world and how they can contribute to a more sustainable future.
