Free the child’s potential, and you will transform him into the world.

What We Are Learning: May
During the month of May, we will be learning about the community and community workers, in the classroom. We are looking for any parent volunteers or community members who can volunteer their time to share their career choices with our students. Parents can help teach children about careers by sharing their knowledge and experiences. We are inviting parents to sign up and take part in the classroom if they are able. When parents come into school on their assigned day, you should arrive at 9:25 AM, wear or bring your work attire. We recommend talking about your typical day, child-friendly games and presentations, hands-on activities or visuals. Presentation should be between 10–15 minutes long. If you can, please bring along any special work tools or equipment to show what you do at work. For example, a nurse might bring a stethoscope so children can listen to each other’s heartbeats, or a beautician might bring rollers and clips to demonstrate how to set hair. Hands on learning experiences help preschoolers understand community workers and the purpose of their service. We will be happy to pass out any flyers or business cards to all the children’s parents to help promote your business.
Please complete the form found in the May’s School News and return it to Sharon if you are able to participate in our community worker program. Please respond, ASAP. Please feel free to contact Sharon at (631) 320-3030 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or would be interested in participating in our parent involvement this month. Please provide contact information so we can send you a confirmation regarding the schedule for your presentation.

Montessori Children—Young Minds of the Future
The mission of Montessori Children is to develop a well rounded student who is eager to learn, is self-confident, and is a contributing member of society who has the zest and skills for lifelong learning. This will be accomplished in a nurturing prepared environment utilizing a comprehensive preschool level curriculum. Montessori classes place children in multi-age groups, forming communities in which the older children spontaneously share their knowledge with the younger ones.
Our Montessori teachers are prepared to foster all children to reach their fullest potential at their own unique pace with the best practices in efforts aiding the children’s natural learning tendencies as they unfold in this “prepared environment” to aid the most profound young minds of the future.
