Finn Starts PK3

Finn started his new school in our neighborhood called Breakthrough Montessori! He is almost 3 1/2 years old.

Ryan and I are both new to the Montessori approach so have been reading about and adopting some new things at hope to help transition Finn. The approach focuses heavily on independence and the child being part of day to day activities so Finn now packs his own lunch, has his own snack drawer at the house and his milk and water bottles are reachable in the fridge for him to get as needed.

Finn Prepping his Lunch for the 1st Day

This is a new school and Finn is part of the inaugural class entering in. There are 18 children in his classroom and his first week has been a success – easy drop offs and pick-ups with smiles all around. Below is a shot of his classroom. They are light filled, very clean, and filled with interesting activities and choices for Finn to select as part of his learning time with the 2 teachers in the classroom. We look forward to what is to come!

  1. Great! A great kid in an apparently great school! I know my mother adopted a few things from the Maria Montessori system for her kindergarten – long, long ago, in the early 1940s. Good luck to you all! Ulrike

  2. You will not regret entering Finn in the Montessori school – it’s modus operandi has been popular (and acclaimed) for many years, so good luck. Finn looks happy XOOXXOO, and I’m guessing he is very capable, so hugs to him, and to bystander Elsa XOOXXOO awaiting her turn. Loads of love

  3. I was so happy to be there when Finn went off to his first day at the Montessori school and delighted with his skills at making his lunch.
