Montessori School Support Class

for children three to six years old
A welcoming space to introduce Montessori to babies and their caregivers.

This 90 minute class is largely unstructured, allowing each caregiver to follow the needs of their individual baby when it comes to feeding, sleep, and play.

The classroom encourages exploration. Young babies will find materials to help practice their visual sense and budding ability to grasp objects. Older babies will explore materials that encourage movement, from crawling to walking. The babies also get to explore meeting other babies!

Caregivers will learn tools to support their child's development and build community with other families.

  • If you or your child have been exposed, you may not attend class until 10 days post exposure.
