Work directly with Montessori Lessons and Materials to better understand your child's education.
How can you get a glimpse of how the beautiful and inviting Montessori materials transform your child? How do you know that learning is taking place and that Montessori is the right choice for your family? This workshop is a unique opportunity for a "hands on" experience with the Montessori materials. It is meant to give you a snapshot of what happens day-to-day in a Montessori school from the day the 18-month-old joins the Toddler Community until the night of commencement for the twelve-year-old. You attend one evening for a journey which progresses through all four levels where you begin to get a sense of the differences between Montessori and traditional education models. Return the next morning, where, under the guidance of the teachers, you will work directly with preselected materials to discover Montessori from the perspective of the child. Each session ends with a lively discussion. It is required that parents attend once in the first two years of their child's time at Aidan.
IMPORTANT: This program is designed to be undertaken as a whole. You must attend both Friday evening and Saturday morning sessions. Childcare is provided on Saturday only.
