Becoming a Montessori Parent
The SJMS community is a learning community and there is always more to learn about Montessori education. The best way to learn is to experience Montessori through the eyes of your child. However, it is important to understand a bit about what and how your child will be learning. To get started:
Schedule a time to observe your child's classroom. Contact Heather Zerbi, Director of Admission to schedule.
Familiarize yourself with the basics of the Montessori Method by reading books by or about Maria Montessori, perusing the websites of Montessori accrediting bodies like the American Montessori Society, and attending parent education events here at SJMS.
Reinforce and build on your child's classroom experience by using the Montessori principles of order, independence, and self-motivation at home.
