Four Seasons Montessori pre-school is opening its doors for children and parents to learn more about the school and its community.
Montessori education aims to create a lifelong love of learning in children by encouraging creativity, curiosity, independence and self-esteem. Teachers provide guidance to children who are encouraged to follow their own educational path through the individualized curriculum.
Four Seasons Montessori is hosting an open house Thursday (Jan. 29), 6-8 p.m., at its 2.8-hectare site at 4960 Hammond Bay Rd. Teachers will be presenting content and curriculum for the kindergarten year, beginning at 7 p.m.
Children and parents can also learn about the final phase of an expansion to extend the outdoor playground space, including a new sandbox in a pavilion that will provide shelter from the rain and sun. The playground will also feature raised planter boxes and a greenhouse that will provide an opportunity for various gardening projects, such as herbs, flowers, berries and vegetables.
Four Seasons Montessori, established in 2000 and currently owned and operated by Keith Bennett, offers preschool and kindergarten programs for children 30 months to six years of age. For more information, please visit www.fourseasonsmontessori.com or call 250-758-8979.
