The dining room and meal-times are considered an educational space like any other and, therefore, all students at Montessori Palau Figueres eat at school.
Apart from offering a balanced diet, this space allows us to work on good table-manners and social behaviour that are also part of the student's learning.
In addition to eating and working on good school relations, students practice different aspects of everyday life and personal independence such as setting and clearing the table, cleaning their area, or serving food. Taking turns, students wash the dishes and start the dishwasher, taking responsibility, too, for tidying up or doing a second wash when appropriate.
The short after-meal period allows students to interact in the different areas and leisure and physical activity spaces under the supervision of the same team of Montessori Palau Figueres teachers.
