• On grace & courtesy and how it serves our community and society

    Charles Terranova
    In order to free oneself from adult intervention the child must learn the ways of society, how people function together as a group. The Montessori theme of Grace and Courtesy is the lubricant that keeps a group of people functioning smoothly. It is the ambiance parents can create in the home and the teacher creates in the classroom. It is a general attitude of graciousness and respect.
