Do you feel like your child gains a new academic skill in May only to lose it over the summer? If so, we have the perfect solution!

Children will join Lisa Tate, experienced Montessori teacher, to continue their work with Geography, Math, Creative Writing, and other Montessori materials. As the children enter a sensitive period, they will be free to choose work that follows their interests, which will enable them to maintain the momentum from the school year.

Children will spend these relaxed mornings choosing work from the shelves, gardening, caring for animals, and participating in outside water activities and art projects.

Children may attend all 6 weeks or choose only the one(s) that work for your schedule.
