Our holistic approach to child development and learning includes forming and nurturing strong relationships with our parent community. We encourage parents to get involved in our work and support their child's development and learning in any way they can. Here are just a few ways we hope to engage and involve our parent community:
- Inviting parent volunteers to share their skills, knowledge and interests to enrich and enhance our program experiences for the children;
- Inviting parent volunteers to assist with special events;
- Sharing useful Montessori resources for parents;
- Getting parents involved in helping us to review and continuously improve our programs and services.
To help us get started, we have included below a few online resources that offer insights and education into the authentic Montessori Method for interested families.
