The child needs wider boundaries for his experiences…It is necessary for us to provide him with culture and to enlarge his social experience…When the child goes out, it is the world itself that offers itself to him.  Let us take the child out to show him real things.
— Maria Montessori, From Childhood to Adolescence.

Every Friday at CMA all students and Directors/ Directresses leaves campus together for a field trip out into the community. Museums, nature preserves, apple picking, canoeing, libraries, the zoo, monthly visits to two nearby senior homes, among many other destinations--each of these has something special to offer the children and adults alike.
