SCI­ENCE has shown that we have a ‘so­cial brain’ and that we are hap­pi­est when we co­op­er­ate with oth­ers, says Perth Montes­sori deputy prin­ci­pal Ian Michael.

“One of the big­gest pre­dic­tors of hap­pi­ness is car­ing re­la­tion­ships so we need to help chil­dren let their in­nate em­pa­thy flour­ish,” he said.

“At Perth Montes­sori, we do that by help­ing chil­dren learn to self reg­u­late and giv­ing them the tools to use ap­pro­pri­ate lan­guage.

“We cre­ate an en­vi­ron­ment that en­ables chil­dren to be their best, feel safe while grow­ing in in­de­pen­dence and where em­pa­thy is a core foundation to the teach­ing phi­los­o­phy.”
