The program provides meaningful activities and experiences for the young and young-at-heart. Residents join students for story time, gardening, singing, cooking and more.

In Montessori classrooms, children make creative choices in their learning, while the classroom and the teacher offer activities to guide the process. Children work to discover, explore and develop to their maximum potential.
