Journey of Discovery

Experience the Montessori environment by journeying through the Pre-primary, Primary, Lower Elementary, and Upper Elementary classrooms. First, you will have the opportunity to silently observe samples of lessons and work at each level. Then, during the second round in each room, parents enjoy hands-on exploration of materials, and teachers and administrators will be available to answer questions about the work and give demonstrations of lessons. End the day with a culminating discussion together over lunch. The experience will be capped at 20 parents per Journey in order to preserve the intimate educational experience. These events begin at 9:00am and end at 1:00pm; lunch is provided.
