Montessori from the Start Programs

We invite you to participate in Forest Bluff School's Montessori From the Start programs. These programs serve as a solid foundation for your child's earliest years and provide an excellent introduction to Montessori education and the goals of Forest Bluff School. You will gain a deeper understanding of your child's self-formation and have an opportunity to meet other parents with children of similar ages.

*Please note: with the exception of the Newborn Series and Home Consultations, all Montessori Parent Events at Forest Bluff School are free of charge. Guests are welcome to attend Forest Bluff Montessori Parent Events. Please RSVP to Lynn Lillard Jessen at 847.295.8338
