The Early Childhood Experience

“I feel like it gave me a new way to connect with my son after school beyond asking the basics.”

There is value in understanding the richness offered in the 3-year cycle so that I can support my child outside the school environment.”

“I was impressed to so clearly see and better understand the process of what and how the kids will learn their subjects. I’m a bit envious of my children’s Montessori experience.  :-)”

Parents are invited to experience the Early Childhood classrooms for themselves in this teacher-guided journey through Practical Life, Mathematics, Language, Geography, Culture, and Natural Science.

WHEN: Thursday, November 7th, 6:00-7:30 pm
