Montessori Global Research Institute offers parents a large number of activities to gain their involvement and understanding of the Montessori philosophy and pedagogy of the school. Please see below and we look forward to having you attend one of these events.
Parent Education Night
Our Parent Education Nights consist of a panel of presentors, usually teachers or school community members, who open up the floor for facilitated discussion around various Montessori and child- centered topics. Topics for our Parent Education nights have included: resiliency, sibling rivalry, fostering independence, child development through a Montessori lens, eating & sleeping patterns, and more.
Parent's Cosmic Coffee
Parent Coffee is a casual conversation over coffee or tea after parents drop their children off at school. Our Head of School offers a brief presentation around a particular child-centered topic followed by lively discussion. This year, our first Parent Coffee is about how we are adapting our Montessori environments to meet the needs of learners while addressing safety protocols related to the current health crisis.
Have you ever wondered what your child is doing during morning work cycle? Since the Montessori environment is reserved for children only, Evening Share offers a rare glimpse inside your child's classroom. Your child will introduce and demonstrate to you the materials they have been working so diligently with. Evening Shares occur a few times per year.
Journey Through Curriculum
Journey through Curriculum is one of the most powerful and informative parent education events of the year. Join us as we explore the Montessori curriculum from Infant through Upper Elementary (ages 3 months through 6th grade). Guests at this event will experience a hands-on tour of the Montessori curriculum with guides of each level to learn firsthand how students are uniquely supported throughout each Montessori cycle and program. Every year, the Journey event focuses on a different aspect of the Montessori curriculum.
Montessori in the Home
Parents are invited to speak to the Head of School, Dr Ambar Cipolloni, to learn how to integrate Montessori principles and philosophy into your parenting and life at home.
