One more successful celebration was possible thanks to the support and generosity of many Juneau businesses and individuals who sponsored or helped organized this event or contributed to our silent auction. With the wonderful music of Salsa Borealis and The Thunder Mountain Big Band, the Juneau Montessori School has been able to promote social dance across generations as another way to bring families and community together, but most importantly, has continued serving Juneau's young children and families for twenty five years.
The Juneau Montessori School is dedicated to provide every child with carefully prepared environments geared to their size, pace, and interests; offering experiences that challenge and fulfill each child as they move from one level of complexity to another. Montessori teachers are profound observers and recorders, trained to recognize each period of growth, need, and readiness. The result is an independent and balanced human being whose love of learning knows no bounds.
