24 parents attend our Journey and Discovery program this year. Parents journeyed through the classrooms spanning the entire Montessori curriculum from Toddlers to Upper Elementary and then visited the classroom of their choice to fully discover the curriculum. The visit included hands-on learning and an opportunity to talk with teachers at all levels about what happens in the classroom each day. It was a wonderful opportunity for our parents to get a hands-on lesson in what their child does each day and how materials and activities are carefully selected for each child.
This parent’s sentiments on the program echoed the feedback from many parents:
“Very informative. We have a better understanding of the system and it’s clear all the staff are passionate about the children.”
Parents took away with them ideas for bringing the Montessori approach into the home. Several activities from the classroom, especially in practical life, can be adopted in the home environment.
Based on feedback from our parent surveys, we will continue offering programming just for parents! Our next parent opportunity will focus on Positive Discipline. Join Jennifer and Ms. Blanca on Tuesday , October 10 @ 6:00p.m. to learn effective ways of encouraging your child as well as how to help him/her to develop important life skills and characteristics. Childcare is available on a first-come, first-serve basis and you can sign up by calling the front desk. We hope to see you there!
