Join Dotty Weaber, Montessori Certified Toddler and Primary Teacher with over 20 years of classroom Montessori experience, as she facilitates Parent and Child classes for Infants and Young Toddlers at The New School of Lancaster.

Dotty prepares the environment for the appropriate age level of the children. A collection of activities is provided, encouraging and allowing self-direction. Parents are encouraged to observe their child as he and/or she moves and explores the prepared environment. Parents are encouraged to refrain from “helping” their children. Parents are guided to observe patiently. Dotty explains the value of allowing children to explore without interruption.

Dotty will share resources such as books and articles that she recommends for further understanding and appreciation of the Montessori philosophy and concepts to be applied in everyday living. Developmental appropriateness is often a topic of discussion and parents are always encouraged to bring along questions or concerns that they may have.
