Thursday, March 22 7:45 AM - 3:30 PM

ALL TOURS ARE SOLD OUT. While we don’t have a wait list, we welcome you to stand by on Thursday morning, starting at 7 AM, in case there are no-shows. We’ll post the location for this before the conference.

The Mile-High City is home to a flourishing Montessori community. Invigorate your conference experience by getting out and experiencing a tour of one of the area’s excellent Montessori schools, along with a professional development workshop.

Tours are extremely popular and filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets are limited to 55 people and sell out quickly, so register early. After online registration closes, any available spots on tours will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis on Thursday, March 22.

All tours depart from and return to the Sheraton Denver Downtown by bus. You must be registered for the conference to attend a tour. Conference registration will be open on Wednesday evening until 9:00 PM and opens on Thursday morning at 7:00 AM. Buses cannot wait for late arrivals, so be sure to arrive at the meeting area on time. Lunches, with vegetarian and gluten-free options, will be provided. Tours will return to the Sheraton by approximately 3:30 PM.

Foreign-language interpreters are available for each tour and workshop; please see the tour descriptions for specific languages. The interpreters must be prearranged; contact Carla Hofland before registering for your selected tour.
