Parent Workshop: Because No One Was Born A Parent with Eduardo Cuevas

February 6th, 2021: 9:00am to 4:00pm
This workshop is open to parents only

This workshop has the purpose of introducing the participants to a clear and broad presentation of the core principles that guide the Montessori education approach. It is imperative as a means to better understand the goings on of the children in the Montessori prepared environment. It empowers attendees to implement those concepts at home as well as partner with the school’s intended program. It is best taken advantage of when both parents attend, experiencing the topics as a couple.
