When you visit a Montessori school, it may feel like you are visiting a family. Everyone knows everyone. Work is shared and learning is vitalized by social life. There is free communication and movement. The exchange of facts and discoveries becomes second nature.

Parent involvement adds to this community spirit. Parents are treated as collaborators in Montessori, often invited to the classroom to share and participate in activities. Children begin to see that their educational experience is the result of their parents’ direct input and action.

The school is a community, and everyone is involved with events such as: performances, field trips and celebrations. Being part of a Montessori family is a feeling that stays with you for the rest of your life.
