Dr. Maria Montessori was an Italian scientist and educational innovator who developed a revolutionary approach for young children in the early 20th century. And Montessori classrooms today are designed to encourage spontaneous, hands-on, experimentation in small groups of mixed-aged students. There is freedom to explore, innovate and collaborate within a well equipped and beautifully designed classroom.
In my experience as director of admissions and head of school for several large Montessori programs, it was not uncommon for parents returning from an observation of one of our classrooms to remark, "I wish I could go to a Montessori school."
Seeing the natural expression of ideas and creativity unfold in an enriching, well equipped classroom inspires and is truly satisfying.
The Positive Impact Center (PIC) wants to make this style of opportunity available to adults in a spacious, well-designed, supportive atmosphere - where diverse groups of individuals can engage with one another for greater innovation and success. Teachers, mentors, entrepreneurs, activists and artists can mix it up for the greater good.
Imagine our Positive Impact community center where members who range in age, background and expertise can work, meet and support one another to produce the optimal outcomes for our organizations, businesses and community.
