Parent Tours at Exploring Minds are a great way to observe our Montessori work time, see our classrooms and garden, and meet our director, Doha.
Our formal tours with Doha are currently on hold, but we are scheduling campus viewings so that families can come and see the school in the meantime.
Campus Viewing (In-Person, approx. 20 min)
The campus viewing is an opportunity to come and see the Montessori method in action. You will be able to walk the school grounds and observe the classrooms. Interested in both campuses? Feel free to sign up to view each school.
Valley Glen: Wednesdays & Fridays starting at 9:45 am
Sherman Oaks: Tuesdays & Thursdays starting at 9:45 am
(Days subject to change some weeks due to school events)
The campus viewing is for adults only (2 per family) and we ask that adults are fully vaccinated or provide a negative PCR test result taken within 72 hours of arrival.
Contact the campus that you would like to visit to schedule your visit today!

Observation Guidelines for the Tour
We find that it is very important that you observe the Montessori method in action in order to better understand the philosophy. Please be aware that in the Montessori classroom, the environment plays an important role in the learning process; if that environment is altered or disturbed, the child’s focus and concentration will be lost. For that reason, we ask that on the day of your observation that you do not bring your child/ren with you.
While observing keep in mind the following:
• To keep distractions to a minimum during the work-time we ask that you do not interact with the children working on lessons.
• It is prohibited to take pictures or video of students, staff and the classroom.
• Refrain from using your cell phones.
• Hold all questions and concerns until your meeting time at 10:15am with our director.
• Avoid holding conversations with other adults.
