Brooksfield Spreads The Love Campaign!
As part of our Spread the Love Campaign this month, Brookfield’s students have been painting stones and coming up with encouraging messages to write on them that will then be placed in various areas around McLean. The idea behind this project is that when someone in the community finds a stone, they can take a picture with the hashtag #BrooksfieldSpreadstheLove and post it to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. The goal of this campaign is for someone in the community who may be having a rough day to find a positive, encouraging message when they stumble upon one of these pretty tokens on a library shelf, or in a park , or another unexpected place. The stones and their messages of hope and love begin a chain reaction that starts with each child and spreads from school to community, and the world through social media. This week the Kindergarteners took a ride on Buster and went around placing the rocks throughout McLean! Be on the look out for rocks, take a picture and post it on social media. We want to see where our rocks travel too!

Mary Anne Duffus is just as enthusiastic about educating children as she was in 1987 when she opened the doors of Brooksfield School. “The school was founded on my love of the comprehensive and successful academic Montessori philosophy as well as providing a creative experience for children to express themselves through imagination and collaboration,” says Duffus of the pre-K through 3rd grade school. “Brooksfield is a safe, loving environment where learning is spontaneous and classrooms feel like home.”
The education at Brooksfield is academically challenging, while including Mindfulness Meditation, music, art, dance, foreign language, robotics, outdoor adventures program, nutrition and organic gardening. “It’s about kids flourishing in a healthy environment where we engage in accelerated learning in stimulating and rewarding ways.”
Set on five acres of fields, gardens and walking trails, the school provides an outdoor sanctuary as an extension to the classrooms. “We nurture the intellectual, social, physical, emotional and spiritual development of our students in expansive and limitless ways,” says Duffus. [LINK to ARTICLE]
Making Blankets for Children’s Hospital
In honor of Universal Children’s Day on Nov. 20, The Brooksfield School, a Montessori school in McLean, wanted to create a sense of community by kids helping kids. Brooksfield worked with students, parents and community members to create no-sew fleece blankets for INOVA Fairfax Children’s Hospital. After a friend of Brooksfield spent the summer battling Leukemia, the school couldn’t think of a better project or recipient than the blankets for the Children’s Hospital.
