An oasis is a place of shelter, a safe haven. The Montessori school protects the child from the fast-paced world in which we live and becomes a place where children can grow in harmony aligned with their developmental timetable and not artificially accelerated by technology and media expectations. For parents, the Montessori oasis affirms and guides their positive expectations to ease the anxiety and stress created by pressured life styles. Cheryl Ferreira, senior staff member of the Maria Montessori Institute in London, will bring an international perspective to the social conditions of the twenty-first century. David Sobel, director of the Center for Place-Based Education at Antioch University New England, will demonstrate how neighborhood involvement, place-based education, green campuses, and cultural partnerships can create a Montessori oasis. Concepts for improving the community landscape for social and ecological reform while creating optimal development for older elementary and adolescent students will be discussed.
