Montessori Beginnings is a partnership among parent or caregiver, child, and Montessori guide. Parents or caregivers immerse themselves in the support and discussion of the group. The gentle and gradual pace of discovery allows them to explore and practice skills while celebrating the curiosity of their child. The Montessori guide’s role is to prepare an appealing environment and support the parent or caregiver and child’s journey of discovery.
