Festival of Nations

Our annual Festival of Nations celebrates our diversity at Northwood Montessory School. Our culturally rich envrironments provide opportunity for the children to learn about other countries and continents. They learn about children from around the world including their clothing, homes, schools, flag, music, transportation, food and animals. Artifacts from other continents are on display around the campus and our parents enthusiastically share cultural items representing their country of origin. Families discuss with their children their family history and include the children in preparing their costumes. On the day of the Festival of Nations, children wear their costume and parade around our wooded playground carrying a flag. The colors are vibrant and the detail is amazing. There are many excellent photo opportunities as the parade progresses. Families bring a dish representative of their country to share with others. The Festival of Nations is a wonderful day full of friendship and celebration!
