Parent & Tot

fostering autonomy

Parent & Tot classes meet weekly for a series of enjoyable activities guided by one of our early childhood educators. The program includes story time, music and movement, a group craft activity as well as an introduction to the Montessori work cycle.

Our gentle approach encourages your child to feel secure at Orchard House and to develop a positive attitude for his or her first school experience. This program has the option of a separation component, where your child is able to participate in individual and group activities with gradually limited assistance, so becoming steadily ready to attend school autonomously.
