3 Mariposas Montessori Cabarete, Dominican Republic

There is no need for words, is there? The pictures below tell you exactly how our students felt about the beginning of the 3 Mariposas Montessori Summer Program in Cab arete, Dominican Republic, this summer. For more information about this school, visit their website at

3 Mariposas offers Montessori from early childhood through the elementary years.

“Let the children be free; encourage them; let them run outside when it is raining; let them remove their shoes when they find a puddle of water; and, when the grass of the meadows is damp with dew, let them run on it and trample it with their bare feet; let them rest peacefully when a tree invites them to sleep beneath it’s shade; let them shout and laugh when the sun wakes them in the morning as it wakes every living creature that divides its day between waking and sleeping.

— The Discovery of the Child, Maria Montessori.
