to make this
a reality!

2020 marked 150 years since the birth of Maria Montessori, the namesake of Montessori education and its creator. The work of Maria Montessori continues to motivate people to change the world for the better and has impacted the lives of children and teachers for more than 110 years. 

 

To honour Maria’s 150th birthday and celebrate her incredible legacy of Montessori education and her commitment to advocating for the human rights of the child, the Killarney Parent Council created the 150th Legacy Project. 

The purpose of the Legacy Project is to enhance the publicly-accessible outdoor spaces at Killarney School. In keeping with the tenets of Montessori’s educational philosophy, our objectives are to:

  1. Introduce outdoor spaces that encourage land-based learning and connection

  2. Improve outdoor equipment that promotes safe hands-on interaction and exploration for all grades/ages

  3. Enhance the natural landscape to increase public interface with nature

Attention parents, guardians and community members. We need your input!
