Parent & Child Program
The Parent & Child Program is designed for children from 15 to 30 months and one of their respective parents or another adult caregiver. The program offers children and families a collaborative beginning in the Montessori experience. The group meets every Saturday morning for an eight week session with a certified Montessori guide in a room especially prepared for the children.
The program provides children of this age with an opportunity to explore new relationships with friends and to interact with adults in a loving and nurturing environment. As part of their early Montessori experience, the children are introduced to age-appropriate Montessori materials and invited to make choices from a variety of activities that support their developmental interests and needs.
Included in the program are parent only discussion groups which meet twice a month in the evening. The guide will facilitate the discussions on such topics as nutrition, discipline, home environments, sleeping and more.
“Adults work to finish a task but the child works in order to grow, and is working to create the adult the person that is to be.”
