Celebration of Light
Friday, January 30th, 2015, 5:30pm - 9:30pm
The Celebration of Light is an annual celebration of the Pacific Northwest Montessori community. The name of the event is a reference to the time of year in which it is held; late January, one of the dreariest times of the year, but with the hope of light and warmth as spring fast approaches. It is a fun and festive opportunity for the Montessori community to eat, drink, be merry, and catch up with colleagues and friends.
More information coming soon!

Montessori in the Square
On July 30, 2014, Montessori Northwest hosted "Montessori in the Square," a public Glass Classroom event held in the heart of Downtown Portland, Oregon, at Pioneer Courthouse Square.
This celebration of Montessori education featured three large interactive Montessori classrooms: Assistants to Infancy (ages 0-3), Primary (3-6), and Elementary (6-12), activities for children, and information for parents. Trainers and guides will be on hand to assist viewers with questions. More information about the event or ideas for how to host a glass classroom in your community can be found here.
Montessori Northwest's experienced teacher trainers and parent educators offer workshops and seminars for parent groups throughout the year. We are working on our slate of workshops for the upcoming school year right now. We'll have more information soon.
If you're interested in having one of our trainers/educators come out to your school or organization, check out our Montessori-to-Go! program.
