Seeds of Peace 

" The secret of good teaching is to regard the child's intelligence as a fertile field in which seeds may be sown, to grow under the heat of flaming imagination. "   -  Maria Montessori


Our Seeds of Peace fund is a growth fund.
 It is our wish to be able to offer Montessori education to all families that seek it out.  To do this, we need more space!  We are currently serving children from Floyd County, Montgomery County, Grayson County, Pulaski County, and Roanoke County.

Our plan for expansion includes a new building to house the existing two classrooms as well as an addition for a new class.  It will allow us to almost double the enrollment we currently have.  It also includes a plan to upgrade our existing playground, which is often used by the community of Floyd as well as the children of Rising Sun.  We are a community school, and we love serving the community!

The Seeds of Peace fund also will provide for further teacher training in topics like peace education, conflict resolution, and community service.  As we grow, we will offer thought-provoking classes and workshops for children and adults of all ages.  

We are full of gratitude for the support and encouragement we have received along the way, and we thank you for partnering with us to make excellent Montessori education accessible to the children of Floyd and the surrounding communities.
