Establishing an outgoing and friendly relationship between staff and parents is crucial to the success of a Montessori daycare environment. Just as the classroom is seen as an organized source of endless activities, the partnership between adults in his life needs to be solid and dependable as well.
Reinforcing the Private Kindergarten
When your son sees you interacting in a friendly, agreeable way with teachers and staff, he learns that the daycare staff fills a similar role to the home environment. In practice, the goal is to mimic a homelike environment as much as possible to encourage familiarity and participation.
Shaping Future Behavior
As new concepts are introduced in the Montessori daycare, you can help build on them at home. Helping out with small chores around the house, taking more responsibility in daily routines, and mastering social interaction are key developmental areas that need parental participation.
Sharing Outside Insights
Parents understand their Montessori daycare children better than anyone. Sharing your observations and expectations makes it easier to guide children on a path to an exciting education. This can be especially true about unique character traits and personal preferences that may not be immediately observable.
Developing the Whole Child
Just as Montessori daycares are invested in developing every aspect of your child, including your child in a wide variety of activities and exploration at home is important as well. Walks in the park, cleaning up around the house or going fishing are all opportunities for parents to forge a better connection to their children and encourage a love of learning.
Through constant observation of your son and regular communication with you, your Montessori daycare is able to create a seamless atmosphere of care, consideration, and education for him to thrive in. Learning is a continuous process, and extending it to include the home and family is a natural reinforcement of the importance of learning.
