The Montessori Journey

Ever wonder what your child does at school? Have you heard them utter mysterious phrases such as the binomial cube, broad stair, pink tower, racks and tubes? Escuela offers a unique opportunity for you to peer into your child's school day, experience the classroom as they do and have these questions and more answered at the Montessori Journey. Journeys are only offered once or twice a year - look for your chance next fall.

The Journey is an opportunity for parents to go through the stages of your child's Montessori education at Escuela, experiencing the developmental, philosophical and educational foundations of your child's education. On the journey, parents spend time in each educational setting, Toddler, Primary and Elementary beginning each session by sitting in a circle, then receiving lessons, having snack, asking questions and experiencing the classroom as your child does.


Parent Workshop Topics

Throughout the school year, Escuela teachers and professionals from within our community offer workshops for parents to explore key areas of our programs and parenting.
