Public Lecture 1:30 - 2:15 pm
"Joyful Engagement: Montessori's 'Uncommon' Core"
Presented by Sarah Werner Andrews (bio)

"Joyful engagement" is a quality that we identify with Montessori children and is an essential component in how we approach our work. But what does this really mean, and why it is so crucial?  Andrews will begin to "unpack" this idea and show how happiness, gratitude, and “friendliness with error” develop core executive functions, but also reduce stress in children’s lives and lead to greater life satisfaction for teacher and child alike.

Open House 1:00 - 3:00 pm

Public Lecture 1:30 - 2:00 pm
"Storytelling and Cosmic Education"
Presented by Elise Huneke Stone (bio)

How did the earth come to be?  How big is the universe?  When did the first horses live?  How do plants get their food?  Where did apples originate?  Elementary children want to know!  To respond to this quest for understanding and the hungry intellect of the 6-12 year old, we offer them what Dr. Montessori called Cosmic Education.  We invite the children into this great inquiry and exploration through storytelling.  Join Elise Huneke-Stone, Director of Elementary Training, for an introduction to storytelling as it supports the children’s development and exploration of the whole universe. 

Open House 1:00 - 3:00 pm

Prospective students are warmly encouraged to tour our spacious facility, speak with staff members about our teacher training programs, and learn more about Montessori.
