Birthday Celebrations / Special Occasions
Your child’s birthday is an important day. In keeping with the Montessori tradition, each child celebrating their birthday will participate in a circle activity known as ‘The Earth Goes Round the Sun’. This activity does not include food but is a special ritual which teaches the important lesson of passing of time from one year to the next.
