Parents

MontessoriParents, 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.

Please wait while we gather your results.

Montessori Program Features:

  • A prepared, orderly environment in which students have freedom to work on their own or in small groups.
  • Self-correcting, sequenced learning materials which help the child develop a strong foundation in reading and mathematics skills.
  • Development of self-discipline and independence built around respect for each other and the school environment.
  • Parent sessions on the Montessori philosophy and methods, with a strong emphasis on how parents can support the program.
  • Belief that learning is a life-long process. The importance of developing a love of learning is central to the Montessori Method of Education.
