"Education begins at birth.”– Maria Montessori
Did you know that Alcuin offers a parent/infant class which meets one day week? We invite everyone to come and discover our Parent/Infant class. The Parent/Infant class, on Fridays from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m., gives parents the opportunity to observe and interact with their child in a rich Montessori environment in which both can explore and discover.
In the Parent/Infant class, children (ages birth to 18 months) can explore and develop social skills, concentration, coordination, and feel a sense of belonging to a group. It also gives parent and child a special time together — time that is all their own.
Led by a Montessori-trained teacher, the class will provide helpful guidance and discussions on child development and how to incorporate the Montessori philosophy into the home. Grandparents and caregivers are welcome to attend in the place of parents.
The class aims to distill and honor each child’s natural tendencies toward healthy, authentic, growth and development. We learn to observe, wait, and trust in the child’s natural ability to self-create.
To register for Alcuin Montessori's Parent/Infant class, or for more information, please contact our Director of Advancement, Alex Valera.
Researching and applying to a school shouldn't be a stressful situation. I am here to answer questions, meet you and your children, and make the process relatively simple.
As Alcuin’s Director of Advancement, I love working with prospective families, having them visit us and discover what a quality Montessori program looks like. With programs for children ages birth to 14 years, I welcome you to come see what has made us a Montessori tradition for over 50 years.
The easiest way to get to know more about Alcuin is to join us for an informational Coffee and tour. We will start with some good coffee, a short video on Montessori Education and then take an in-depth look at all of our classrooms. At the end of the tour we hold a question and answer session, and explain our admissions process. Tours are held once a month (9:00 to 10:30 a.m.) in the main Alcuin campus. Our tours will begin in October, but I can also schedule a one-on-one tour during the summer.
Alcuin also offers financial assistance, if you qualify, so we can help make an Alcuin education financially possible for your family. Call (708.366.1882) or email me so I can introduce you to Alcuin Montessori. I’d love to hear from you.
