We are always excited to meet the parents and get started on what can be a nine to ten-year journey from Primary through Elementary Montessori. It is a point of arrival, too, because it means we are ready to receive our new children for Orientation.

First Parents Arrive
As the first parents arrive, we begin learning, begin the partnership with lots of information about home, about the class and with just getting to know each other.
A Meeting in the Parking Lot on the Way to the Classroom
We started out in the parking lot in some cases, catching up, sharing our eager anticipation for the good days to come.
Who was your first teacher? What do you remember about that first class?
