Parent Observations

parent observation

The parent observation is an opportunity for you to get a glimpse of what life is like in a Montessori classroom. This may be your first time at the Castlecrag Montessori School, or you may be here to find out more about your child’s day.

Many parents, upon first entering the Montessori environment are amazed by the diverse activities that are going on. In order to have the best possible observation experience, here are a few tips for observing and interpreting what you see in the Montessori classroom.

The structure of the Montessori program provides each child with as much time as they need to complete their chosen task to his/her satisfaction, with success as the primary reward.

As you look around the classroom notice the materials; how attractive they are in placement, color, cleanliness, quality, etc. Children are attracted to learn in this environment.

We understand that you will not be able to see all the dimensions of the classroom outlined above in the time you have with us. If you have any questions about your time in the Castlecrag Montessori classroom, please write them down. We will be glad to answer these questions by telephone or in person at a later date.

The start of something wonderful. . .
