Have fun with your child. See your child grow throughout the Parent-Child Program as he or she joyfully explores the Montessori environment, experiments with the Montessori materials, and discovers the children around her or him. Meet other parents. Eight families with similarly-aged children join each Parent & Child session. Parents have the opportunity to socialize both in class and on the playground.
Develop your parenting toolkit. The infant and toddler years are exciting, but also challenging. Montessori principles can help you make the most of this precious time. Each week, one of our trained Montessori teachers (either Jaime D’Amico or Joline Douglas, Head YCC Teachers) will offer thoughts on topics that are on every parent’s mind. Leave with practical tips for applying Montessori ideas at home.
Try out the Montessori program. The Parent & Child Program at Washington Montessori School is your chance to experience “Montessori in a nutshell.” You and your child will be in a Montessori classroom, experience some of the typical daily activities, and learn from an experienced Montessori teacher. Seeing is believing: if you are at all unsure if Montessori might be right for your child and family, you’ll have your answer after this class!
