Montessori Showcase

It's been a very busy week!  The children have been working with a strong sense of independence while being receptive to new lessons as they master older ones.  Also, our classroom has seen a number of visitors of new families planning for next school year who are interested in learning more about our program.  We are eager to share our school and showcase the hallmarks of Montessori classrooms.

  1. Nice images dear. These types of thing are very helpful for children. They can easily learn something with help of these materials. Now many companies are providing these types of materials. I know the Products of Kid Advance are best in quality materials which enable children to develop fantasy, innovation and motivation.
