December's Message

Principal Photo
Dear BCMCS Community,

I think we can all relate to the fact that life can especially become a ‘blur’ during the holiday season. With this busy time of the year approaching, I hope you pursue moments of recollection and appreciativeness, while sharing meaningful time with friends and family.

Recognize that there are a plethora of events and activities planned for this month -- from Movie Night to Holiday Shopping to Holiday Concerts. Be sure to visit the BCMCS Working Reference Calendar [found in the Quick Links section under Calendar, or at http://www.localendar.com/public/bcmcs ] for all the ‘December’ happenings set to take place.

With the ‘gift-giving’ holidays approaching, I would like to encourage you to consider our combined Montessori ideals. When making toy selections, be sure to envision what your child will do with that toy. Will it encourage focused activity? Creativity? How long do you think your child will have interest with it? Will it sustain exploration and discovery? These creative, discovery based concepts are adhered to in our Montessori learning environment, which, in most instances, cannot be fashioned from an item that is ‘fixed’ in its usage or meaning [i.e., action figures, dolls, collectables, etc.]. Montessori-like toys would be those based on, and directly related to, the quality of sensorial experiences in the real world. Montessori 'rich' toys would be those that enable a working solution (puzzles, Lego structure, etc.), or are strategic in their use of imagination (arts and crafts, building sets, etc.), all the while embellishing a positive challenge and sense of accomplishment. Remember that the more experiences children have with creative, working, strategic items, combined with purposeful activity, the more useful, creative, and effective their cognitive minds will become.

The staff and I wish you and your family a safe and happy holiday season. As always, take care and until next time…
Mr. Brian Long
