Community Life and Parent Involvement

Childpeace believes that teaching children effectively requires the close collaboration between parents, teachers and administrators. The social life of each class and the community at large offer enormous learning opportunities for every child. Maria Montessori believed that the young child who is actively engaged in a functional social community at an early age will become a responsible citizen in their adult life. All members of the child's family are encouraged to participate in the life of the school in a variety of ways, including parent education, classroom activities, volunteer efforts and community gatherings.
