for small hands_0.pngMore information to come on this event:  This year the PTSA is sponsoring For Small Hands, which is an organization that gives parents the opportunity to purchase many of the same child-size items children use at school.  It is a great way for bringing Montessori into the home by enabling children to participate in the home environment with the same ease and success they enjoy in the classroom.
