Montessori: A Collaborative Effort!
Parents and teachers need to work together in order to support and follow the whole Montessori process. The school is not a drop-off place; effective use of this school comes best through communication. Children often confide in their parents, and it is important to know how the child perceives the day. On the other side of this coin, the teacher sees the child in a "scientific environment" and has a unique facility for serving children in the context of other children and materials. The parent and teacher each hold jigsaw pieces which, when coming together, generate a more complete picture.
The Montessori program also offers parents creative principles for redesigning aspects of their home, for approaching the child with new kinds of tasks and challenges, for discipline, and general understanding. Parent education gives parents another way of seeing, which may enhance decisions related to child development. Thinking and talking about children along with other concerned adults offers heightened awareness and a better response to you child's needs.
