“Peace is what every human being is craving for, and it can be brought about by humanity through the child.”

—Maria Montessori

Montessori Behavior Guidelines

Even in our peaceful Montessori Schools, there is a need for Peace Education.

The quality of life at Montessori Family School is based on students and teachers working together in a spirit of mutual trust and responsibility. Structure and logical consequences exist so that everyone can work together, feel safe, and be glad they are in school. Three basic rules keep the atmosphere of the community pleasant: respect yourself, respect other, and respect the community.

Peace Table Lessons

We will give students a tool to address “kid sized” problems. All classrooms will introduce a peace table. Lessons will continue on use of the peace table. Some important points to let teachers know about their Peace Table:

  • Encourages children to talk about conflicts.
  • Should Placed in a Quiet Area of the classroom
  • Is ONLY used for conflict resolution or peaceful reflection. THIS IS NOT A TIME OUT TABLE OR A SNACK TABLE, ETC.
  • Children are not forced to use The Peace Table but must choose to use it on their own.
