The Silent Journey & Discovery

“I was really affirmed that we made the right (education) choice for our children.”

Michael McDonald

“I have a better understanding, a deeper knowledge, of how special my son’s education is. I now have an appreciation for how hard he works as a student, and for the teachers, how well they support the kids.”

Emily Neuhaus

The Silent Journey & Discovery is a powerful and emotional event for many parents. It’s a unique opportunity for parents to put themselves in their children’s shoes and experience first-hand what it’s like to be and learn in a Montessori environment through the entire continuum; Toddler through Upper Elementary (and soon to be Middle School). This experience is a profound revelation for most parents, as they themselves did not go to a Montessori school.

We asked parents to describe their Silent Journey & Discovery experience in one word and this is what they said:

Eye-opening

Enriching

Enlightening

Magical

Validating

Joyful

Amazing

Creative

Fun

The Guides prepare each classroom environment, Toddler through Elementary, with materials. Each material has an associated card – some have instructions like Washing a Table in the Toddler classroom or solving the Trinomial Cube in the Children’s House. Other cards say “Ask for a lesson!” like addition with the Golden Beads or Division of a Fraction by a Fraction.

Parents move through the environments just as their children do, working with the materials independently, or working with peers in groups. They receive individual lessons from a Guide, and lessons in a group, and they observe lessons given to others.

Parents explore all aspects of the curriculum; practical life, sensorial, personal expression, art, science, math, history, and language. They even practice grace & courtesy.

They see how materials move organically through the program levels, building deeper more complex understanding at each stage. They experience how a concept on paper can be explored even bigger in real life.

They get to know each other, connect with the guides, learn how deeply passionate we are about what we do, and perhaps most importantly, they experience just how fun learning can be!
