Open House – Spring 2019
Montessori in Motion – Winter 2019
Children learn best when they are involved in authentic experiences that matter to them, experiences that are real life. The Montessori area of Practical Life is just one of these areas where a child can develop skills and build community from the primary thru the elementary years. Are you curious about a Montessori education? Why does Montessori have mixed age groups? What is the difference between a Montessori class and a traditional classroom? and Why are students washing dishes? Come learn more at this informational evening.

In the spirit of a true school co-op parents, family and community members came together to upgrade the playground by spreading a mountain of mulch. As the saying goes many hands make light work.
Parent Welcome Potluck 2017
Our Montessori guides introduced parents on how to bridge Montessori learning into the home and went over the rituals and routines of the school day. Our families stayed for a potluck picnic after, enjoying the fall weather.
Student and Parent Orientation 2017
Students and parents came together the week before school began for orientation week. The students met with their Montessori guides and new classmates, and parents were welcomed into the Sea Rose community. It was a wonderful way to ease both parent and child into the new school.
Sea Rose Montessori Meet and Greet 2017
It was a fun filled afternoon as the community of future Sea Rose families came together to meet the teachers, see the classroom and a sampling of Montessori materials. The children engaged in fine motor activities such as sewing stitches in burlap, pushing colored wool into seedpods and making pictures with stones. The parents spent time speaking to the teachers and meeting additional Sea Rose families. So excited for September!
