The Montessori Parent-Child Program is a unique learning experience for you and your child – the first and only program of its kind in Boston!
Montessori Parent-Child classes are an opportunity for children (2 months to 3 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 class with their child. The class 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.
The 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 also receives a journal to chronicle their child’s progress in these and other areas. This program allows 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 5 different 8-week sessions throughout the year: Fall 1, Fall 2, Winter, Spring and Summer.
