As we begin to plan for a phased re-opening, we are working to put into place new and updated health and safety protocols. In order to adhere to the 6ft rule, as well as stricter infection control policies, participants will not be sharing program materials or sitting together. In order to have enough supplies to allow for each participant to engage with our Montessori activities, we will be accepting donations to help us assemble Personal Montessori Kits for participants to ensure they do not touch or share items.

If you are able to help us with a donation of needed items, please contact our Program Director, Mary Branzelle, to arrange for delivery or item pick-up, as well as for any questions about particular items or quantities. Thank you for your help to ensure we maintain the health and safety protocols necessary for resuming our on-site programming.
(Many of these items are available at the dollar store).
