It's been awhile since I've posted anything new about school happenings, but that doesn't mean we've been at a standstill. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. I've found that starting a school means wading through endless laws and making sure that we meet every possible standard. It's a lot of paperwork and question-asking and revising our plans and making sure that we never lose sight of our vision through it all. I won't lie: it's a lot of work.
One of the benefits, however, is that I've met amazing people along the way who are willing to go out of their way to help us. So THANK YOU! To all the people who have helped our school so far. Thank you to all the parents in our school who have supported me by providing babysitting for my kids while I wade through paperwork. Thank you to the schools like Peaceful Pathways Montessori, Lincoln Park Preschool, Seton Montessori, and Creative Corner Montessori who have offered advice and donated materials. Thank you to our board members for their unending hard work. Thank you to the people in our community who have volunteered their services and given generously to see our project get off the ground. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
My big announcement is that we have an official new location at 1410 N Springfield. We have two classrooms in New Life Community Church, and we are so grateful for their partnership also!
We are moving July 1st starting around 11am, so please contact us if you'd like to help with the move. Also, we will be having work days to repair some wall damage and the baseboards in the classroom, paint, and put up window coverings. Work days will be July 20th and August 3rd, 10am-3pm.
