Get Involved

All Magic Lantern employees will exercise caution and common sense with the children at all times, knowing who is in school, who is napping, who needs toileting, and so on. Each staff member will have clear and consistent expectations for every child. The teachers will encourage children to take responsibility for their behavior, understand consequences, and repair their mistakes.

All staff members will work cooperatively with one another as a team to create an environment consistent with the peaceful, respectful Montessori method.
