The Parent Child program was created to help parents share in the joy of their child's discoveries as they watch them develop.

The program is made up of two components: class time for the parent/caregiver and child, and a parent discussion series.

During the parent discussion series on Thursday evenings, parents will have an opportunity to learn more about the Montessori approach, discuss common parenting topics, determine their role in the classroom, and have questions from class time answered. Specific dates/times regarding the Parent Discussion Series are determined at the beginning of the year. All discussions will be virtual and conducted on a Thursday evening.

The goals of the Parent Child program are:

  • To foster the child’s development through his/her self-expression within the classroom environment.
  • To give parents a better understanding of Montessori as a way of life for their children.

The Montessori prepared environment for the young child promotes the child’s growth in the following areas:

  • Motor development (large and small)
  • Language development (receptive and expressive)
  • Socio-emotional development

The parent’s understanding of the children’s development will be cultivated as they observe the children in the environment, participate in discussion groups, and use other RKMS resources. Areas of focus may include:

  • Understanding developmental stages and appropriate activities to encourage such development.
  • Practicing and refining observation skills.
  • Developing a Montessori “way of life”.
