FREE Public Lecture SERIES & OPEN HOUSE
Tuesday, November 15, 2016
5:30-7:30PM @ MNW
Through careful preparation of the environment, the Montessori teacher connects each child with unique, hands-on experiences within an integrated, emergent, three-year program. This public lecture will use the example of Biology to demonstrate the very essence of Montessori teaching, showing how we can facilitate exceptional learning opportunities for each child.
- Local teachers are also welcome to stop by for the lecture, explore our practice classrooms, or visit our extensive Montessori library.
Open House 5:30-7:30pm
Montessori Northwest is hosting a free Open House and Public Lecture, and you're invited! Prospective students are warmly encouraged to tour our spacious facility, speak with staff members about our teacher training programs, and learn more about Montessori.
- MNW graduates and current students will also be available to share their unique perspectives on what it means to take a training course. It's a great time to get a hands-on introduction to Montessori Northwest.
A current student had this to say about her visit to MNW:
"While touring MNW I got the feel for how the Trainers taught, and the passion, care, and responsibility they feel towards each student's success. As I listened and traversed through the classroom environment, the sense of community was astonishing to me. Overall, the tour impacted me positively and I found myself in deep awe."
