ToTH Montessori strives to offer our families a close-knit, respectful, caring community during this most important time in your child’s development. We offer regular parent ed sessions, monthly newsletters sharing news from the classroom and tips for home, and through our social media pages we share stories, photos and videos from our classrooms and wisdom from the broader Montessori community.
Parents with questions are always encouraged to schedule an appointment with their child’s lead teacher.
