OCMS’s Fall Fair, held on the school’s expansive back field, offers an all-things-family festival of autumn. Seasonal costumes welcome!  Jim Armstrong (of the Armstrong Brothers duo) entertains with family-friendly music performed on guitar. Pony rides, arts and crafts, a touch-a-truck exhibit, games and a costume parade round out a delightful afternoon of fun.  Food and refreshments will be available for purchase, and a cider donut tree is generously provided by Jac’s Cafe of Rockland.

About Old Colony Montessori School

Founded in 1963 by a dedicated group of parents, Old Colony Montessori School (OCMS) is one of the oldest Montessori institutions in the country, and the oldest south of Boston.  The school’s mission is to foster learning in the spirit, philosophy and practices set forth by Dr. Maria Montessori more than a century ago, providing a comprehensive growth and developmental experience.

The Montessori method is designed to meet the needs of each individual child.  Its treasured characteristics include encouraging students to develop the skills necessary for active and intelligent exploration, a lifelong love of learning, self-discipline, a positive sense of self, creating an environment that allows for optimal learning experiences, community awareness, respect for others, and fostering a passion to embrace all of life with respect and love.  Each classroom is prepared with carefully designed Montessori materials that support each child’s innate desire to learn. OCMS students develop a natural love of learning that lasts a lifetime, and approach the world with self-confidence, intellectual curiosity, joy and respect.
