events include opportunities for parents to learn about Montessori philosophy, child development, and LMS curriculum and programs.
Parent Learning events fall into three categories:
- Parent Learning Conversations -- small group gatherings where a variety of topics are discussed amongst parents, i.e., how to manage transition with regard to your child(ren), and what a parent can expect their son or daughter to experience in high school after graduating from LMS.
- Understanding Montessori -- “Teach Your Parent Night” entails giving parents an opportunity to spend time in the classroom with their child(ren) in order to better understand and appreciate how students spend their day; “NOW I GET IT!” enables parents to spend time with teachers in order to appreciate how the Montessori philosophy is displayed in the classroom; and “Montessori Across the Ages” demonstrates the Montessori educational philosophy on a continuum and affords parents the opportunity interact with LMS alums.
- Winter Event & Potluck -- In February, LMS parents, faculty, and staff come together for a potluck dinner followed by an educational presentation with a focus on a relevant topic of the times. For instance, the topic last year was pediatric nutrition.
