New at MMS: Stepping Stones Program

This program is geared toward 2 year 8 month- 3 year old children. In a classroom with 12 students and 2 teachers children will begin their Montessori journey in a small group that mirrors the MMS 3s and 4s morning . They will be introduced to beginning Montessori lessons, have snack, art, music, movement and foreign language. This class is a wonderful way to help transition these students into a school setting.
