 “We wanted to let you know we’ve started the process of preparing our children for the Montessori way of learning/living. We have enjoyed setting up our house so much. We have a buffet in our dining room which is no longer used for adult storage since it is such a good height for the children…it is full of textural and sensory toys (no batteries!) and full accessible. The children also have their own pedestals on which to stand to wash their hands and (hopefully soon) open the refrigerator themselves (they aren’t strong enough for our colossal refrigerator doors yet!). We are really enjoying it so far, especially when one of them says “yook!” (“look!”) and points out something that he or she did ‘the way it was supposed to be done.’ Really breathtaking.” – Roham Rafat, Prospective Parent

We are delighted that you are considering a Montessori education for your child!

Prospective families completing one or both of these courses will receive priority in our applicant wait pool. Grandparents and other caregivers are also encouraged to attend.

Though prospective families have priority in registering for these courses, they are also offered at no cost to current parents, family members, and caregivers who wish to learn more about the Montessori Method.

Finally, we encourage professional tutors, coaches, and other auxiliary caregivers and instructors in our community to attend.
