Get to Know Us

Whether you have always planned a Montessori education for your child or you have recently discovered Montessori, we offer several introductory classes to help parents determine if our school is a good fit. 

Parent and Child

Our Parent and Child classes are a great opportunity for parents to experience the Montessori classroom with their child. Parents, grandparents and nannies are welcome to accompany the student, although we ask that only one adult accompany each child to a class. These classes are best for children between the ages of 2 and 3 years, with or without previous classroom experience.

Each session of Parent and Child is four weeks long and provides students and their caregivers ample time to work with materials in the classroom, participate in circle time, eat snack and play on the playground.

Registration

Parent and Child classes are held on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 11:15 am. Sessions are typically scheduled during the winter and spring. Space is limited and registration is first-come, first-serve. The cost of each 4-week session is $75.00.

Independent Child

For the young child ready to try school independently, we offer an “Independent Child” class. This is an opportunity for children to come to school for a short time in order to acclimate and experience the Montessori classroom. This class is appropriate for children 2 and 3 years old.

Classes are held on Friday. Children will start the school day, like our full-time students, with carpool drop-off and move through a modified school day schedule. Independent Child classes are held in our Transitional Program room. Students have the opportunity to work with classroom materials, participate in a short circle time, eat snack and play on the playground. Potty-training is not required to participate.

Many families find this class to be a good steppingstone to their child's enrollment in our Summer SessionTransitional Program or the Traditional Montessori Program.

Registration

Independent Child classes are held on Friday's from 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM or 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM and are scheduled in a Fall and Spring session. Space is limited and registration is first-come, first-serve.
