Parents, as the primary educators of their children, are an essential part of the Montessori program. Report cards and parent conferences are one aspect of the interchange between home and school.
Events such as picnics, potluck dinners and art fairs help to establish a friendly school community. Parents are also encouraged to participate through classroom observation, material making and chaperoning school trips.
Throughout the year the schools offer classes on parenting skills, as well as Montessori topics.
