You and Your Child's Montessori Education: Early Childhood

Going beyond the classroom and into your home.

We know that education goes beyond the four walls of a Montessori classroom. That’s why the American Montessori Society has created a robust learning experience for families who want to learn how to apply Montessori philosophies at home.

You and Your Child’s Montessori Education: Early Childhood is designed for AMS member school families with children ages 2 ½ – 6. In this course, parents will receive resources to enhance their child’s education, utilize Montessori practices within the home, and share and discuss their experiences.

We hope this course will reaffirm your family’s decision to deliver a quality Montessori education to your children and leave you with a greater understanding of the Montessori method as a whole.

What You Will Experience

Join with other Montessori families dedicated to continuing Montessori principles within their home environments. This course will include live experiences and self-guided study for 6 weeks of powerful guidance and classes. Participants will be expected to commit 1 – 2 hours each week.

Who: Parents and guardians of children (ages 2 ½ – 6) who are currently enrolled in an AMS member school.

Cost: $150
