• “The child’s conquests of independence are the basic steps in what is called his ‘natural development’.”
    – Maria Montessori


    Spend quality time with your very young child (birth – 3)

    Allow your young child the ability to explore an enriched Montessori classroom with the security of child’s parent/caregiver

    Learn about various topics relating to child development and parenting

    Enjoy the opportunity to observe your child interacting with age appropriate activities and peacefully playing with peers.

    Become familiar with Montessori education and its practices for both home and school. This program is unique to Montessori schools as the parent/caregiver attends with the child and both delight in the joy of exploration. The group meets with a Montessori certified teacher in a beautifully enriched classroom. After the exploration period, the children sing songs during group time and then partake in a community snack.

  • Montessori First Steps includes sessions for parents to discuss topics relevant to parenting young children. Discussions are led by a Montessori certified teacher and include topics such as Montessori in the home, positive parenting, and toilet learning.
