Come celebrate the holidays with Miss Annie of Great Beginnings Montessori School. While we are together, we will explore the meaning of the holidays, as they relate to our children. By doing so, we help them to appreciate those around them, family, community and subsequently, the world at large. During each session, we will read about the holiday, where it originated as well as create a unique craft for the day.
