The Children's House recognizes that a strong partnership between family and school greatly enhances a child's educational experience.  As a parent, your involvement is crucial to the life and vitality of our school.  Without your participation, our program runs the risk of providing a disjointed experience that lacks relevance to home and community life.  

WORK DAYS

Creating and maintaining an exciting, safe environment for our children is an ongoing process. Work days have been set aside for parents and staff to work together for the betterment of our school. Each family is contractually required to participate in a workday. 

PARENT COMMITTEES

Each of the listed committees make important contributions to the life and culture of our school.  Active participation on these committees is essential in helping create a community in which parents know one another and know the children. 

PARENT EDUCATION

We ask each family to commit to learning all they can about the Montessori method.  For most of us, Montessori is very different from our own educational experience.  Journey & Discovery is our most comprehensive parent -focused event.  This full-day seminar is mandatory for all parents new to The Children's House.  We also encourage you to read about Montessori and to attend our Education Evenings and Montessori Morning Coffees.  

Because we believe that parent involvement is key to the success of our school, I/we commit to serve on the following parent committees: *
Please choose at least one committee (or more!)
Would you be willing to chair a committee? *
I/We commit to attend the following family workdays: *
Please choose at least one workday to attend. You may choose to pay out your workdays at a fee of $100 per day, however, this is strongly discouraged as we seek to build community by working alongside one another.
Have you got any skills that you think might be helpful or fun to share?
