Monday, 08 April 2019
Hello Lyonsgate Montessori Families,
Your next Parent Education Evening is coming up on Thursday, April 25.
- From 3:30-4:00 the Toddler guides will be discussing and demonstrating the Practical Life area of the Montessori environment, both for your growing knowledge of Montessori and to give parents some ideas for the summer that will also help your children to thrive in Casa.
- From 4:00-4:45 your children's Casa guides will discuss the child under six being a sensorial learner, and how technology can be an obstacle to the absorbent mind.
- From 5:00-5:45 Elementary parents will have the opportunity to see how the Montessori geography curriculum works at the Elementary level.
- There will be childcare, with pizza. Click here if you'd like to register for childcare (registration required for pizza), and please do so no later than Monday, April 22.
Lyonsgate parents are welcome and encouraged to attend all Parent Education sessions, including those at higher levels your children will be moving up to in the future. We host these events to help you better understand the theoretical underpinnings and material practise of Montessori education, and we've been seeing more and more parents attend this year. We hope even more of you are able to make it to this event.
This week, your children's Montessori guides are discussing the importance of outdoor activity for developing minds and bodies. Once spring makes up its mind and we have regular nice weather, children can only benefit from outdoor adventures and exploration.
