About Us / Yearly Events

Birthdays are fun at Central Montessori! From party hats to birthday cakes, we love celebrating your child’s special day with his or her classmates.  Please notify teachers in advance for any preparations you may want to make.


Field trips are scheduled within the school year as an important part of the center curriculum. Notices and permission slips will be issued in advance. We always encourage parents to make arrangements to accompany their children for the short field trips, which are usually half a day. Exploring with your young child on outdoor excursions with similar peers are highly interactive for both parent and child. Find the time to make some good memories!
