are encouraged to dress in red, pink, or purple.

Reading to children is one of the most effective
ways for strong cognitive development. Our
Montessori program includes a rigorous reading
program, and our teachers are always in search of
exciting books to read to the class. We strongly
encourage our parents to donate their child’s used
books to our class library.
