Montessori education week

May River Montessori will celebrate Montessori Education Week with two open house events during the week of February 25 - March 3, 2018. The school invites our families, friends, the community and local officials to visit the school and see the children in action in the classrooms.   

  • The open house for primary classes (ages 4&5) will be held on February 28, from 1:30 - 2:15pm;
  • The Elementary Showcase will be held on March 1, from 6:00 - 7:00 pm.  

South Carolina, the state with the greatest number of public and private Montessori schools receives a formal recognition of Montessori Education Week by State Governor Proclamations since 2007.   The South Carolina Montessori Alliance (SCMA) proudly applies each year for the proclamation.

The concept of Montessori Education Week was born in the late 1980's in hopes of increasing awareness of Montessori education worldwide.   In the late 1990's this week reached national and international audiences and is now celebrated by several thousand Montessori schools in the US.
