Montessori Hours - Open to the public

Attending a Montessori Hour is an important component of your enrollment process and will help you know if Montessori education would be a good fit for your family. Some priority is given to families who have attended one or more of the Hours. We offer four different topics so that you can gather a deeper level of information about our approach to education at Childpeace.
