Celebrating exciting events of the year and culture at the Learning Ladder offers numerous benefits to our children.
By engaging in these celebrations, children gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of their own culture and the diversity of others. They learn about different traditions, customs, and values, fostering respect and empathy for various cultures. Participating in festive activities promotes social interaction, as children collaborate in preparing decorations, organizing events, and sharing experiences. These celebrations also ignite children’s curiosity and provide opportunities for hands-on learning, as they engage in art, music, storytelling, and culinary activities related to the festivities. Through these experiences, children develop a sense of belonging, cultural identity, and a broader worldview, promoting their social, emotional, and cognitive growth within the Montessori environment.
