Mini-Montessorians - Explore & Play session, presented by CuratedCare

The MTC is thrilled to announce 'Mini-Montessorians - Explore & Play,' a program for parents & children ages 9 - 18 months old and up to two parents at the City Treehouse in Chelsea.

Presented by an educator from CuratedCare.com, this program will guide you in engaging your children in the exploration of beautiful and simplistic materials (colorful scarves, wooden blocks, safari animals and more). You'll learn tips about the Montessori approach that you can use at home. And parents and babies will get to meet and socialize with other twin parents and babies! (And yes, research shows that babies DO socialize with each other!)

There is a small fee of $8 per member family; attendance is very limited so RSVP early on the members-only community site.

This event is open to members only. If you aren't a member and would like to attend, join us!!
