Help Parents to Bring Montessori into the Home
Saturday, March 23 | 09:45 AM - 11:00 AM
Session 8: Workshops
Parents are often short on time, juggling work and children, distracted by technology, overwhelmed by information overload, and balancing busy lives with wanting to be the best they can be. They know the Montessori approach will help raise capable and curious learners but aren’t always able to support our classroom work at home. As Montessori guides, we have so much we can share with them to help bring some calm into their homes and to offer their children an education for life, not just during school hours. Learn how to engage parents in your school and provide them with tools to use at home so that their children can benefit from Montessori 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. And see how your own work becomes easier when parents are on board.
