Hoboken Montessori School Summer Program 2012

HMS is excited to announce our 2012 Summer Program. Montessori teachers extend the multi-age classroom experience using traditional Montessori materials while focusing on an exciting cultural theme. In addition to individualized independent work, children participate in carefully planned activities, projects or games meant to enhance the general theme specific to each 2-week session. Visiting presenters, music, movement, cooking, art, and geography provide a rich and exciting experience!
