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.
Your Child's Montessori Education: Early Childhood
Your Child’s Montessori Education: Early Childhood is designed for AMS member school families with children ages 2 ½ – 6. In this course, they will receive resources to enhance their child’s education, utilize Montessori practices within the home, and share and discuss their experiences.
This course will include live experiences and self-guided study for 6 weeks of powerful guidance and classes. Participants will be expected to commit 1 – 2 hours each week for 6 weeks. Learn more.
