Our Programs

Our Events

Parents and caregivers are invited to learn about and discuss topics to support the parenting journey and help understand children’s development and Montessori education. As an educational team, we believe that teaching children effectively requires close collaboration between parents, teachers, and administration. Each year, we present Parent Education workshops and discussions to help parents with the various developmental stages and challenges that arise when parenting. Topics vary and are tailored to parents of children within different age groups while complementing Montessori philosophy.
