Why Support the 2020 Annual Benefit?
WHY GIVE TO CMS?
1. We depend on charitable gifts to operate. As one of the most affordable independent schools in the area, with highly qualified staff, 11 acres of land, and a PG County shuttle, we depend on your contributions to operate as a non-profit organization.
When you give to some organizations, you may wonder if you’re padding the pockets of faceless executives. Your gift to Chesapeake Montessori will buy chickens for our Adolescent Program, playground equipment for our Primary students, books for our library, or help families who otherwise would not be able to send their children to a Montessori program.
2. Reforming education through authentic Montessori is important to us. For over a century, Montessori schools have nurtured the whole child with scientifically supported, developmentally based programs. Modern neuroscience research confirms what Dr. Maria Montessori discovered: children thrive when guided towards independence in accessible, beautiful, natural environments filled with materials they can touch. “The hands are the instruments of man’s intelligence,” Dr. Montessori observed.
Our faculty and staff serve students in a manner that fosters development of soft skills crucial for success in a fast-changing workplace: skills such as adaptability, problem solving, empathy, emotional intelligence, and teamwork. We are passionate about Montessori standards and societal change.
3. Our families are your neighbors, clients, and potential customers. We are socially and environmentally conscious, and prefer to support businesses who invest in things we care about. Parents and supporters of CMS notice when local businesses like yours are working toward a common cause, and are more likely to become customers and share their appreciation via social media and word of mouth.
