COMMUNITY OPEN HOUSE
Friday, November 6th
6 – 8 p.m.at CMCS
(please use the CMCS entrance behind Waccamaw Middle School)
The Community Open House will take place in the midst of CMCS’ Open Enrollment period for the 2016-2017 school year. Director Dr. Nathalie Hunt encourages anyone with even the most remote interest in Montessori to attend the Open House and see Montessori in action. “It’s hard to comprehend the importance the environment and specially-designed materials play in a Montessori classroom until you see it all working together for yourself,” Dr. Hunt said. “Immense preparation goes into a child-centered classroom that facilitates the self-discovery found in Montessori. It allows teachers to serve more as guides as children learn by doing at their own pace. I invite the community to attend and experience education from a whole new perspective!”
Teachers, students and staff will be on hand demonstrating Montessori materials and answering questions.
The Community Open House will take place in the midst of CMCS’ Open Enrollment period for the 2016-2017 school year. Open Enrollment is going on now through December 15, 2015.

Coastal Montessori Charter School offers a free public Montessori education for Georgetown County children from grades first through sixth currently, first through seventh beginning the 2016 – 2017 school year. CMCS is in store for an exciting year next year with a new building under construction and the addition of middle school.
Why CMCS Exists:
- To Close the Achievement Gap – because all children deserve the same opportunity to be successful and because investing in our children’s success strengthens our community.
- To Read On Grade Level by Third Grade – because the first few years of school, children are learning to read; for the rest of their lives, they are reading to learn.
- To Cultivate REAL Life Skills in Children – because our children will compete globally and need to be equipped with what education experts call the “Seven Survival Skills:” critical thinking, problem solving, self-regulation, taking initiative, communication, inquisitiveness, and the ability to work as part of a team.
