“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.”

~Dr. Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind

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

Led by seasoned gardeners, parents and children will learn all about the process of growing a garden. 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.

Process Art
September 3 – May 30
Toddler (18-36m) Monday
Preschool (3-6yr) Thursday

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.
