At Fallbrook Montessori, we believe that parental involvement in a child’s education is a key to the child’s success in school and in life. There are many ways parents can become involved in our educational community:
- Attend parent education events
- Volunteer to help make materials
- Act as a Parent Liason
- Event planning and execution
- Improvements to the school facilities
On a day-to-day level, parent helpers are welcome to participate as chaperones at celebrations, field trips, or other special events. Parent volunteer needs for each classroom are published in the weekly bulletins as needed. Additionally, Children’s House parents will be asked to donate fruit, vegetables, crackers or cheese, etc. to provide for the daily snacks twice a year.
Two parents from each classroom will be invited to act as Parent Liasons. These volunteers will notify you regarding upcoming events, and to ask for help with sewing, material making, holiday projects, and school celebrations.
The administrator and teachers of Fallbrook Montessori work in partnership with parents to provide an education that meets the needs of the whole child.
In order to assist parents in this partnership role, we offer several parent education programs throughout the year. The main purpose is to provide information on the Montessori curriculum and on how you can support your child’s development at home by working in partnership with us. It also provides a forum in which parents can discuss their views, concerns, and experiences with other parents who have similar goals for their children.
In addition to these classes, parents share in the life of their student by attending parent-teacher conferences, open houses, and parent-child nights. Classroom observations and discussions with teachers further involve parents in their child’s experience at school. We whole-heartedly support our parents’ efforts to enhance their child’s Montessori journey!
