Greene Towne Montessori Introduces Montessori & Me Classes

Discover Montessori learning with your infant or toddler in Center City Philadelphia.

Starting in September and led by Montessori certified teacher Olivia Powers, Greene Towne has introduced Montessori & Me Playgroup classes for young children in Center City accompanied by their grown-ups (parents or caregivers/authorized adult.)

Each age cohort meets one day a week from 9:15 to 11:45 am in 6 – 8 week sessions and is limited to ten children and their grown-ups. The Tuesday playgroup is for nine to 15-month-olds who are crawling, scooting, or cruising; the Wednesday playgroup is for 12 to 24-month-olds who are walking independently; and the Thursday playgroup is for 18 to 30-month-olds. There is also a Parent/Infant class on Wednesday afternoons.

During classes, older infants and toddlers spend the morning exploring the Montessori environment while their grown-ups learn how to support their child’s natural drive to learn and grow. The morning starts with a group circle time, bringing everyone together with a welcome song, stories, and rhymes. During open “work” time, children engage in several developmentally appropriate and child-centered Montessori activities. The morning wraps up with another group time and a goodbye song. 

Interested parents can find registration and fees on the website at gtms.org/montessoriandme or reach out to Erika Goldberg at egoldberg@gtms.org with any questions. 

Greene Towne Montessori School recently moved into a new, custom-designed building at 55 N. 22nd Street, which provides 30,000 square feet of learning environments to meet the growing demand for high quality, accredited, and licensed early childhood education for young Philadelphia families. In addition to Montessori & Me classes, Greene Towne hosts complimentary Parent Education Workshops appropriate for parents of infants through third grade. 

Since 1966, Greene Towne has served young families who live and work in and around Logan Square, Center City, and across many Philly neighborhoods. For more information about the school, admissions, and Parent Education, visit www.gtms.org.
