The Michigan Montessori Society strives to conduct two educational workshops each year. Traditionally, these are scheduled on the first Saturday of November and the second Saturday of March. However, the specific dates are set each year according to the availability of the guest speakers. The workshops are designed to meet the needs of both teachers and parents.
