The parents are an informed and active body. They are recognized as the primary educators of their child(ren). The Montessori Children’s School depends on the collaborative efforts of parents through The Board of Directors, Parent Teacher Organization and Parent Volunteers to provide a quality educational setting.
MCS encourages parents to be involved with their child’s educational experience. Parents are asked to participate in classroom observation, parent orientation, parent/child nights, and acquiring knowledge on the philosophy and practice of Montessori. Through these activities parents will learn more about their child, our classroom environments, the Montessori experience, and become advocates for their child’s lifelong love of learning.
The Montessori Children’s School is a true community school. Understanding the old additive, that “it takes a village”!
The MCS PTO
The purpose of the PTO is to establish a close relationship between home and school by advancing opportunities for all parents to become involved in the MCS community. The PTO will give assistance to the directresses/directors in the classroom by raising funds for supplemental education materials and by supporting school and family social interaction. The PTO’s mission is to work collaboratively with the classrooms, with the sole purpose of creating the best possible learning environment for the students.
Membership in the MCS PTO is voluntary and open to all parents of currently enrolled students, teachers and staff members at the school. Membership is tracked in an effort to stabilize participation and add validity to decisions and recommendations made by the MCS PTO. There are no annual membership dues.
