The Journey of Discovery: A Montessori Experience for Parents

Saturday, October 23rd
9am-12pm

The Journey of Discovery is an event dedicated to providing parents with a meaningful experience of visiting each of our programs, from Primary through Middle School. We invite you to experience for yourself the magic of the Montessori materials and discover how the lessons learned in our Early Childhood programs set the tone and lay an important foundation to prepare students for higher academics and critical thinking skills in the upper programs. This is a wonderful opportunity to gain a sense of how the Montessori Curriculum unfolds through the eyes of a child. You will experience how Montessori guides and develops the natural unfolding of the whole child to inspire intrinsic motivation, a lifetime love of learning and peace.

This program is open to the public, specifically any parent interested in learning about the Montessori continuum.
