The children at SEEC learn about their world in an educational setting that is unparalleled. They are introduced to new ideas through personal conversations with scientists, artists, and cultural historians who share their passion for learning in concrete, engaging ways. SEEC children learn about the era of dinosaurs through personal encounters with paleontologists where they are able to see the tools used to examine the past. Kindergartners become ‘scientists’ in a visit to the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center where they explore nature intimately, make observations, test hypotheses, and discuss ideas with an entomologist. Throughout the year, SEEC children become familiar with people and cultures from around the world through the wondrous collections of the Smithsonian Institution and the various places around the DC community.

Maria Montessori was a physician in Italy in the early 1900’s. The government was struggling with children being left at home during the day while their parents worked. Dr. Montessori had worked successfully with special needs children, so they asked her to establish a program to care for the children. Through careful observation and experimentation, Dr. Montessori learned what materials and activities engaged the children’s interest, appealing to their instinctive need to learn. Her goals were to meet their developmental needs, and to teach them practical skills, academic fundamentals, respect for others, and care of self and the environment.
