Through the Looking Glass: A Montessori Experience for Parents
Have you ever wondered what Montessori looks like through the eyes of your child?

As parents, there are many reasons why we choose Montessori for our children. There is the development of independence and healthy self-esteem which evolves so naturally in a Montessori environment; the foundation in academic subjects like Math and Language which are introduced at the child’s level of ability and interest; and, the opportunity for your child to socialize with peers and for you to meet other families who share your conscious parenting values.
But have you ever wondered what Montessori looks like through the eyes of your child?
The Silent Journey experience is designed to allow you to view and interact with the Montessori classroom through the eyes of a child, because, for a few brief hours, you get to be the child.
You will be invited on a Silent Journey in which you will view the Montessori classroom in a new way. You’ll experience the environments through the lens of quiet observation, gathering first impressions as your child may have done in their 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 and play within these walls.
You will also have a chance to actively engage with some Montessori lessons and materials at each lev and to discover the qualities that are so magical for your child.
Following each session, you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and share reflections with other parents and staff.
