Dr. Maria Montessori supported the concept of children taking care of the classroom environment. She taught her students that it was their responsibility.
Today, Montessori schools follow the idea of taking care of the classroom environment by instilling stewardship of the earth in the hearts and minds of Montessori students. Montessori schools worldwide support and enforce the three Rs of the environment: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
The Toronto French Montessori School asks parents to further contribute to the concept of having a "Green School" by sending their children to school with lunches and snacks that use minimal packaging. Any waste produced by your children's lunches will be returned to your home in the children's lunch bags. Please use reusable dinnerware to help reduce the amount of garbage in our landfills.
It is important that we teach our kids the importance of maintaining a clean environment for both the classroom and our global community!
