Northwest Montessori School strives to create a strong community between the students, staff and parents. To accomplish this, we ask that the parents stay active in the school and their child’s education through observation, conferencing, volunteering and giving. Parents can remain involved with the school through social events, work parties, fundraising, and parent education. In addition, we encourage parents to study the Montessori philosophy and to learn how they can bring Montessori into the home.
Parent Observations and Conferences
Parents are encouraged to make at least two observations or visits to your child's class during the school year, but are welcome to observe at any time. Observation is an important teaching tool in a Montessori classroom and is the most beneficial way for parents to understand their child’s day. Scheduling a classroom observation prior to a conference with your child’s teacher will provide insight to the parents, therefore leading to a more meaningful conference. Our Parent/Teacher Conferences are designed for discussion regarding the time that each child spends in the classroom. Northwest Montessori School schedules two conference sessions per school year: in the fall and in the spring. To schedule an observation of your child’s classroom, please contact the main office. Conferences can be scheduled with individual teachers.
