Parent Education and Conferences
The school offers a variety of programs during the year so that parents may improve their parenting skills and broaden their understanding of Montessori philosophy, methods and materials, and of child development in general. Parents are strongly urged to read Dr. Montessori's books and those of other experts in the field of child development, behavior, and education. Most of these are available at your community library, may be borrowed from Kinder Haus' library, or purchased in inexpensive paperback editions.
Parent conferences are scheduled twice a year. A parent or teacher may request a conference by appointment at any time if either feels there is a need for one. Observations may be scheduled by parents of currently enrolled students October through April but are not required before conferences.
