She has assembled a rather extraordinary group of Montessorians who are all working together to help both the children/adults living in Ukraine in the midst of war and those who were displaced due to the war.

And we are trying to help. Here's how:

We are closed on Juneteenth to honor and reflect

In 1865, 250,000 enslaved people in Texas were initially told by a Union Army general (who came to Galveston with a company of troops) that they were freed by executive decree.  This action went forward even as Confederate officials resisted implementing the Emancipation Proclamation, which had become codified two years earlier.  This day has now been memorialized into a Federal Holiday called Juneteenth, the "Black Independence Day".  ⁠

Maitri Learning is taking time off today to pause,  to reflect on where we've been, where we are, and where we need to go.  ⁠

Price Changes

It is with deep regret that we have been required to adjust our prices to reflect the reality of our increased material and labor costs. Like all of you, we are feeling the results of inflation and must adapt to stay financially sustainable.

We have rarely changed our prices in nearly 20 years of business so please know that we do not take this change lightly. Neither are we driven by profits. Instead, we are trying to maintain a financially sustainable business that is able to pay a fair/living wage to everyone on our team.
