    "We can imagine an adult society organized as a constructive society on the same lines as the children’s – that is, along the lines of this naturally cohesive society. Attachment to other people is the first stage, bringing men to work together towards a common goal."

    Maria Montessori, The 1946 London Lectures 

    Does your staff team have different training backgrounds? What methods are in place that enables them to contribute to each other’s development and the whole-school vision?
