FAMILY WORKSHOPS  Mariana Calleros will be hosting Family Workshops in November and December.  Please see the attached Family Workshop Flyer for more information.  November classes are now full and December is filling quickly.  Book now to avoid disappointment!  Please contact Jeanne to register.

“The parent sessions give me a safe space to talk and receive  feedback about daily obstacles and struggles in raising my children.  The Montessori guidelines used in the workshops help to bridge school and home life and helped me understand the connection and importance of both worlds combined.  It is a helping hand in my journey to parent.”

“These parent workshops have taught me the most valuable lesson in raising children: taking responsibility for what I am feeling and how that is affecting my children.  I have gained insights as to what is underneath the behaviour as well as valuable tools to use in order to create the close attached family I want.”
