AMS Family Resources

Supporting Montessori families inside and outside the classroom

A Parent's Role in Education

We know that learning happens both inside and outside the classroom. That’s why the American Montessori Society offers family resources to member schools, like the free monthly newsletter, AMS Family Connection. Other offerings for both member and non-member schools alike include a formal course for families of Early Childhood students. Learn more about how the families in your school district can incorporate the Montessori method in their home and bring this teaching philosophy to life in all that they do.

Our Montessori Course for Families

You and Your Child’s Montessori Education: Early Childhood

This course is designed for families with children 2½ - 6 years old, who are interested in incorporating the Montessori philosophy into their day-to-day lives and parenting approach. Participants will receive resources to enhance their child’s education, deepen their Montessori knowledge, and learn how to apply Montessori principles at home.

This course will include 6 weeks of live, online experiences and self-guided study. Participants will be expected to commit 1 – 2 hours each week.

Course modules include a look at Montessori's view of child development, the role of the parent, the work cycle, and the prepared environment as it applies to the classroom and home.

We invite you to share this flyer with families of early childhood students at your school who may be interested in participating.
