Classes are designed to encourage observation and understanding of the Montessori philosophy in the 21st century. Additionally, each class includes a discussion related to child development, parenting or a similar topic. Due to our desire to provide highly personalized and meaningful learning, we typically enroll no more than 8 children per class. A parent or trusted caregiver must attend each class.
