Montessori Morning 080Did you ever want to be a child again?

For a few hours on Saturday, January 7, you’ll have the chance as Mountaineer Montessori School presents a “Montessori Journey and Discovery” experience. This very special event is designed to allow you to view and interact with the Montessori environment through the eyes of a child.

The Montessori Journey and Discovery begins with an exploration of the classroom environment through the lens of quiet observation, gathering first impressions as your child may have done in his or her first hours at school. As you take in the sensory richness and detail of the Montessori classrooms, you may experience the sense of order and sequence which so elegantly engages the children who work within these walls.

Following the silent observation, you’ll have a chance to actively engage with some Montessori lessons and materials at each level… and to discover the qualities that are so magical for your child. Throughout this portion of the evening, you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and share reflections with other parents and staff. Finally, we will all join together to share reflections and observations.

2:00 p.m.: Welcome and brief overview of the day

2:15-4:15 p.m.: Exploration and engagement in each classroom environment — Primary, Lower Elementary, Upper Elementary and Middle School

4:15-5:00 p.m.: Refreshments and reflections with MMS guides from every level

You will have ah-ha moments. You will be inspired. You will likely find yourself wishing you had a Montessori education as a child.
