Grandparents & Special Friends Day

Friday, April 26, 2019

One of the core values of Near North Montessori is building community and we strive to achieve this by including family and friends in our activities. Near North Montessori is thrilled to honor and celebrate the special people in the lives of our students and hosts an annual Grandparents’ and Special Friends Day every year, welcoming hundreds of loved ones to our campus to spend the morning learning about, and participating in, a typical day of our students.

Please join Near North Montessori and our hosts, Willie and Carol Cade, grandparents of Grace Marshall, for a special day with your grandchild/ren.
