Join us at the Parent Education Night Thursday, October 20, and learn more about the important role our Practical Life curriculum plays in Montessori Education. One of the components most appreciated by parents, Grace and Courtesy, will also be discussed, as it is an integral part of the Practical Life curriculum from the Toddler program through the Upper Elementary.
