Parent-Teacher Conferences This Week

Parent-Teacher conferences are this week, Tuesday April 24th – Thursday April 26th. Be sure to check your children’s classroom door for posted schedules.

If you have more than one child, sign up at each classroom.

Why do we have Parent-Teacher Conferences?

Parent-Teacher conferences are a unique and useful insight into your child’s growth and success at Manalapan Montessori preschool and beyond. If you are unable to attend during your teacher’s appointed time slots, contact your teacher directly for alternate arrangements.

During your conference, you child’s teacher will discuss your child’s specific learning growth, with specific attention to the five areas of Montessori Learning:

  1. Sensorial
  2. Practical Life
  3. Culture
  4. Language
  5. Science and Mathematics

Why are conferences important?

Teachers often spend a of time with the children in the classroom. This makes the child/teacher relationship vital to your child’s growth. Each teacher gets to know a child’s temperament, likes and dislikes, strengths, and unique personality traits. Teachers offer insight into each child’s development.

What kind of information will my child’s teacher share?

Our teachers create and share an individualized progress report. This report addresses not only facets of Montessori learning, but also fine and gross motor skills, maturity and growth, and social interaction.

What kind of information will my child’s teacher share? How should parents prepare?

We do not require parents to prepare, but some find it helpful to put together a list of questions or concerns. Our teachers will guide you through the process.

Back to School!

Manalapan Montessori is now accepting applications for enrollment for the Fall 2017 semester!

Why Montessori?

Montessori is an approach to education with the fundamental belief that a child learns best within a social environment, which supports and respects each individual’s unique development.

Children educated using the Montessori Method grow into competent learners who know how to learn and love learning. A solid foundation developed early in life fosters self-confident, contributing adults.

In Dr. Montessori’s words:

“…They will be witnesses of the unfolding of the human soul and to the raising of a New Man who will not be the victim of events, but will have the clarity of vision to direct and shape the future of human society.”
