Georgetown Montessori Pre-School Open House June 3

May 31, 2017

Children's House of Washington, a Montessori pre-school, is having an open house this Saturday, June 3 from 9:00 am to noon.


Located in the Dumbarton Methodist Church at 3133 Dumbarton Street, the school encourages students to work at their own pace: "Children pass through sensitive periods of development early in life. Dr. Montessori described the child's mind between the time of birth and six years of age as the "absorbent mind". It is during this stage that a child has a tremendous ability to learn and assimilate from the world around him, without conscious effort. During this time, children are particularly receptive to certain external stimuli. A Montessori teacher recognizes and takes advantage of these highly perceptive stages through the introduction of materials and activities, which are specially designed to stimulate the intellect."

Waiting for Ladurée

It's time to learn the correct way to say macaron. It's mah-kah-ROHN (not mah-kah-ROON). 

Remember when Georgetown Cupcake arrived and there were lines around the block every day regardless of weather? Amazingly, still.

Well, there's a new dessert in town. Yes, there are other good places for macarons but it's hard to compete with Ladurée. Delicious pastries, savories, drinks and oh yes, that charm.
