About Montessori School in A Coruña is a nature school project, without formal classes or walls, only forest, park and sea. Here children learn and study using their creativity and organizing their time. We believe that one of the biggest problems we face in “civilized” society is the denaturation of life. We grow in a society far from the natural environment, we have stopped being animals to be human beings, and with this, we have placed ourselves above natural life, we have lost our biological essence. We move away from suffering, old age, the germ of life and death. With the desire to protect children we move away from the vital reality, from the natural cycle. We are human beings, but we are also animals. Denying it leaves us helpless before a hostile nature. Felix Rodriguez de la Fuente was astonished to discover the happiness of primitive tribes, their innocence, their well-being. He associated it with its harmony with the environment. Nowadays children suffer “house arrest” and they start talking about a deficit disorder of nature, not as a medical diagnosis, but as a set of disorders associated with the lack of outdoor activities. We are looking for a volunteer who can collaborate in the daily tasks of cooking, carpentry, painting, outdoor activities and any help that may be useful to the school. We are not looking for teachers, only people with creative spirit and skills to perform creative activities.
