~Dr. Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind
“To recognize this great work of the child does not mean to diminish the parents’ authority. Once they can persuade themselves not to be themselves the builders, but merely to act as collaborators in the building process, they become much better able to carry out their real duties; and then, in the light of a wider vision, their help becomes truly valuable.”
Now Enrolling for Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 Semesters!
If you are interested in enrolling, please fill out a registration form below.
In place of our Parent & Child programs for the 2021 school year (and beyond for those interested!), we are offering an at-home learning program called Borrow Buddies. Families can borrow home kits weekly which contain classroom materials and books from our lending library based on your child’s age and unique interests. This program is currently full for the Spring 2020 semester, but you can be added to the waiting list or sign up for future semesters here.
As Montessorians, we know two things for certain:
1. Education begins at the moment of birth.
2. The relationship between parent & child during this period of development is so important.
Our goal with Parent & Child programming is to provide a unique experience that allows for bonding and education to happen together as a family. Trained guides will offer support as you and your child learn together about all that Montessori education has to offer your family

Montessori Parent & Child Class
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday
(choose 1-2 days/wk)
Infants and young toddlers will explore the prepared environment while parents (or other caregivers) learn from trained guides about the foundations of Montessori education such as observation, early brain development, toilet learning and discipline.
Gardening & Nutrition Club
Tuesdays 1:00-1:45 PM
Led by a seasoned gardener and chef, parents and children will learn all about the process of growing a garden, nutrition and food preparation. Participants will work in our school garden and will have guidance in creating their own child-friendly garden at home, enjoy garden-themed crafts and projects and spend time outdoors together learning about nature.
Thursdays 1:15-2 PM
To encourage independence, creativity and self-expression, early childhood art experiences should be process-based. This means that there are no expectations to create a final “product.” Participants will have the opportunity to work with a variety of quality art materials both cooperatively and individually. Children will also learn to setup and clean up their own art spaces and materials. Guides will offer support to parents on creating an art-friendly space at home for their child.
Thursdays 1:15-2 PM
Practice yoga alongside your little one while enjoying the beauty of nature. Our certified Yoga instructor will lead yoga and mindfulness exercises designed to meet the needs of parents and children together. Everyone can participate at their own pace – all levels welcome from beginner to expert!
