Montessori All Day, All Year [pdf]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Introducing real community into the Children's House goes back to the roots of Montessori education through all-day Montessori. The all-day environment is a house where children live with a "developmental room" of Montessori materials including a living room, kitchen, dining area, bedroom, bathroom, greeting rooms, and outdoor spaces. Practical life becomes the continuous core function of all-day Montessori. Preparing food, setting tables, doing laundry, gardening, and many other tasks become integrated into the willing self-construction of the child in this community.
