The Earth Tortoise School

  A Montessori Community for Infants through Preschoolers

2020/2021 School Year Calendar

We strongly value family and rejuvenation as being good for the soul and an important part of everyone's life. The school closures listed here are designed to provide everyone - the children, parents, and staff - time to spend with loved ones, opportunities for refueling and enriching the spirit and returning to school with new energy. Everyone needs a vacation sometimes and pre-planning for this allows us to provide the most consistent care possible, avoiding the need for alternate care-givers throughout the year.
