At JCMSOG, parents are a very important part of our school community; we recognize that children are most successful when school and parents work together. Parent education and community involvement are an essential part of our program. We work with our families to understand the nature of Montessori education and to create an environment of support for this unique approach to learning. Through parent education classes and various modes of communication, our families understand the strengths of Montessori education and learn to use home activities that build on their children’s natural inclination to learn. Teachers, children, and families know one another, create a partnership of empowerment, and set the tone for successful education throughout the child’s life.

Communications: Parents will receive frequent, pertinent communications from their child’s guides and from the school. In addition to weekly work folders and daily face to face conversations, you can expect to receive important information via Facebook, Shutterfly, email, and monthly newsletters.

We have two parent conferences scheduled each school year, once in the Fall and once in the Spring. Additionally, you may request a conference with your child’s teacher at any time.
Observations: One of the best ways to gain a better understanding of the “Montessori Magic” is through observation. We invite parents into our classroom communities to watch the children’s work unfold.
Workshops: To help parents understand what their children do all day while at school, we have developed frequent parent workshops that discuss different elements of Montessori philosophy and the environment. A typical workshop will include a brief presentation, followed by time in your child’s classroom experiencing lessons and work the same way your children do.
Parent Discussion Groups: Parents often want to know what they can do at home to help support what their children are learning at school. Our “Montessori Mornings” parent discussion group meets regularly. Over tea, coffee, and light snacks, we discuss typical parenting struggles and how to utilize Montessori values and principles to resolve conflict and make home life a little more peaceful for everyone.
