The Montessori Journey is an annual parent education event at Keystone Montessori. In a powerful two day experience, parents, Guides, and members of Keystone Administration come togther in a shared experience of discovery. This year, our Montessori Journey returned to the beloved in-person format. Participants joined us on Friday evening for a silent journey through classrooms at each level to observe the environments and visually appreciate the thoughtful preparation of each space. Reflecting on the classrooms helped to prepare for our workshop on Saturday by provoking ideas, questions, and observations.
On Saturday, January 28th parents, Guides, and members of the administration came together on campus to receive Montessori presentations at each level. The opportunity to witness how lessons transform as students grow illustrates the powerful impact of a Montessori experience. Beginning in the Toddler community, lessons are given individually and with great respect. Each material builds upon the foundation of those that come before, and children work at their own pace supported by their Guides.
The Montessori Journey gives Keystone parents a chance to see how deeply their children’s experience with materials and lessons in Toddler and Children’s House is connected to their continued learning throughout lower and upper elementary, with a culmination in the adolescent environment. The child’s journey leads them to the discovery of the individual they are meant to become. Each year we look forward to sharing this experience with parents and hope you will join us for the Montessori Journey in 2024.
