COVID-19 Updates
We would like to thank the Walnut community for their
continued cooperation in following the pandemic
guidelines. Although we have learned about encouraging
news regarding the vaccine, we need to continue to be
vigilant about following the protocols, especially in the
winter. The teachers and staff implement these guidelines
not only in the children’s daily activities but will also do
so with the upcoming special activities.

December 21 - December 31 — Practical Life in the
Montessori Classroom
We will dedicate this joyous time to learn more about
practical life activities that are fundamental to a child’s
development. As an essential part of the Montessori
method, practical life activities are often referred to as the
heart of Montessori education. Practical life not only
offers activities to enhance analysis of movement and
critical thinking skills but also provides opportunities to
celebrate the season with arts, crafts and food preparations.
December 31 - January 1 - School Closed for the
New Year
The school will be closed on December 31 & January 1
for the New Year. May every day of the New Year glow
with good cheer and happiness for you and your family!
