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 to meet other parents with children of similar ages.
