Montessori Monday Parent Education Seminars

If you have ever wanted to learn more about the Montessori methodology, how it nurtures a child’s natural development, and how you can create an environment in your home that encourages your child to be resilient and independent, then we would love to connect with you! CMMS has an empowering and inspiring parent education and engagement program that brings parents together so that they can feel connected, continue to grow in their role as parents, and support the work of their children in a school and home setting.

Join our parent education seminars, Montessori Mondays @CMMS, led by Ms. Gaye Novak. Ms. Gaye is a Montessori-certified teacher and Instructional Leader at CMMS with decades of both personal and professional experience in Montessori education.
