The vegan permaculture farm school says its mission is to help children learn self-reliance, sustainability, meditation, mindfulness, conflict-resolution, as well as compassion for all beings and the earth as a part of core academics. They are placing the focus on kindness, empathy, and compassion along with academic performance.

The school teaches with the Montessori method that was developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, empowering children to educate themselves in an environment that invokes and supports their natural curiosity and development. Heärt Montessori helps children to develop high self-esteem and self-acceptance through meditation, mindfulness, yoga, art, music, gardening, and being out amongst nature. Teaching children the tools they need to be kind to themselves and others.

Applications for enrollment are now being accepted for the 2019-2020 school year. The school offers drop-in open houses monthly on these dates: January 27th, February 20th, March 13th, April 14th, May 5th, and May 15th. You can also set up a classroom visit by contacting the school.

On the Heärt Montessori website, the school asks us to imagine a kinder world that’s free of violence and greed, free of poverty, war, hunger, and homelessness. Imagine a sustainable world where people treat all beings with compassion, and everyone is able to live a healthy, purposeful, and fulfilling life.

Heärt Montessori is located in Cincinnati, Ohio at 218 Ludlow Ave. (Carson Lodge). Their sister organization and inspiration for the virtues they uphold, World Peace Yoga is located just a few doors down.

The school is also offering a Montessori summer camp this year. It is comprised of three sessions, each session with its own particular focus: peace education, permaculture, and mindfulness.

“Now more than ever, the stressor of a fast-paced adult life pervades our children. From bullying to low self-esteem to media saturation, integrating practices like mindfulness and meditation assist children to handle stress and pressure in a healthy way. By practicing non-harming in daily life, the children develop an intrinsic sense of empathy and compassion, which empowers them to manifest the most exquisite version of themselves,” says Heärt Montessori co-founder Caroline Caldwell.
