Princeton Montessori School’s faculty and administration believe that teaching children effectively requires close collaboration between parents, teachers, and administration. Each year, we present Parent Education workshops and discussions to help parents with the various developmental stages and challenges that arise when parenting. Topics vary and are tailored to parents of children within different age groups while complementing Montessori philosophy.
Opportunities Throughout the Year
Our goal is for parents and teachers to work together and support each other in educating and raising self-reliant, resilient and healthy children. A strong supportive community is paramount and the involvement of family is an important part of your commitment to the school.
Princeton Montessori School also participates in CommonGround, a collaborative effort of fourteen Princeton area independent schools. Each year, CommonGround sponsors a lecture series featuring distinguished speakers who address contemporary educational and parenting issues.
