Convent Station, NJ - The Montessori Children’s Academy (MCA), with campuses in Chatham, Morristown, and Short Hills, proudly announces that enrollment for the Spring Session of Montessori, My Child, & Me (MMC&M) is now open. This class is held at our Morristown and Chatham campuses and is specifically designed for children ages 18-30 months to explore a Montessori environment while accompanied by a parent or caregiver.

Starting on March 28, 2017, MMC&M will introduce participants to the Montessori approach to education, while planting the seeds for the child’s lifelong love of learning. Families have the option of participating in the 75-minute sessions once or twice a week for eight weeks. Classes are led by Montessori certified teachers in a fully prepared Montessori environment. In addition to exploring age appropriate Montessori materials, participants will engage in music, movement, and yoga activities. Parents and caregivers in attendance will be provided with educational and developmental resources as well as opportunities to ask questions in order to gain a more in-depth understanding of the Montessori Method.  

Montessori, My Child, & Me will be held at both the Chatham and Morristown campuses of The Montessori Children’s Academy.
