*Montessori Matters * – The Math Curriculum March 26th at 9:15am

Please join us to learn how we approach the Math curriculum with each individual child. Learning to recognize and work with numbers is great fun! This is a wonderful foundation that your child will use forever! We certainly hope that you will join us!


Our Re-enrollment is now complete. I thank each family who has shared their child with us and has developed an understanding of how special a Montessori education is for their child. Our hope is that through this three year journey, each child will be curious, patient and confident in their abilities to discover the world and build lasting relationships with those they entrust. If you have any questions with the placement of your child for next year, please ask. We are here for you and your child.

Looking Ahead …………
