The Montessori Parent/Child Program is a unique learning experience for you and your child – the only program of its kind in Boston!
Classes are held at the USES-Harriet Tubman House in the South End.
Montessori Parent/Child classes are an opportunity for children (two months to three years of age) and their parents or caregivers to learn together in a Montessori environment, one that is specially suited to the developmental needs of young children. Through observation, discussion sessions and other resources, parents have the opportunity to watch their child (or children) thrive while they themselves grow in their role as nurturing caregivers.
Parents/Caregivers attend a weekly 90-minute session with their child. The session includes an activity period, snack time, and “circle time." In order to familiarize parents with the structure of the program, we offer an orientation meeting prior to each session.
program is designed to provide today’s parents with access to the
essence of the Montessori philosophy. At the core of the program is the
belief that parents can contribute immeasurably to their young child’s
development by being informed observers. We create an appropriate,
nurturing and safe environment which allows children unlimited
exploration. At the same time, we help parents to become active and
knowledgeable observers of their children. We address concerns such as
nutrition, sleep issues, communication, toileting and more. Each family
will also receive a journal to chronicle their child’s progress in
these and other areas.
This program will allow parents and caregivers to embrace the benefits
of a proven scientific method – the Montessori Method – and make it part
of everyday life with their child.
We offer two Montessori Parent-Child classes. Classes meet for 8 weeks.
Montessori Parent-Infant Class (2 months old to 18 months old and walking steadily) Montessori Parent-Toddler Class (18 months old and walking steadily to 36 months old)
