Please REGISTER HERE or in the office.


Wednesday, Jan. 27th at 6:00 - 8:00 pm

     You are your child’s first and most influential teacher.You set the tone for your child's love of learning from the very start and it is you who bridges the gap between school and home. But how do you begin to create a “Montessori” environment in your home? We can help! 
     Join us for "Bringing Montessori Home: A Parent Development Course on Practical Life" on Wednesday, January 27th from 6:00-8:00 pm. Our teachers will demonstrate activities you can use to prepare your home environment to nurture your child’s independence. From getting dressed in the morning, to preparing lunch or snack, to cleaning up and putting away toys - you will get hands-on presentations to help you help your child to “do it myself.”
     Everyone who attends will also receive:

  1. A photo book of the demonstrated activities
  2. A selection of practical, child-sized materials to take home after the presentation

     Soon your child will be pouring his own juice, chopping his own vegetables, and cleaning up his spills while you marvel at the confident and independent individual he has become!
     This event is open to the public but registration is required and limited to the first 40 families to sign up. There is a $20 supply fee per family for the take-home materials.There will be NO CHILDCARE offered for this adults-only event. Please register today online. Deadline to register is January 20th.
REGISTER HERE or in the office.
