Montessori teaching and religion
In her book "God and the child", Maria Montessori wrote:
"Schools whose curriculum include the teaching of religion treat it like one subject amongst others. However, religion is more than that. It is something much bigger and also completely different. How can we communicate religion to the child? Well, it cannot be given, we must ensure that it can develop. It must develop through the influence of the environment. We must ensure the appropriate environment."
Following this basic approach, the teaching of religion in all classes at our school is offered according to the curriculum of public compulsory schools.
