TREETOPS MONTESSORI SCHOOL
ABN 83 617 052 625
Treetops Montessori School firmly believes that a partnership should exist between the school and family. At Treetops, we treat each child with respect and promote a high level of independence. We encourage the consistency of these considerations in the home environment. We recognise that the parent/guardian is the most important person in the child's life and we aim to create a partnership in which parents are involved in their child's education. Parents are invited to assist with a variety of daily activities within the classroom - for example, cooking, craft and accompanying children on excursions. Assisting within the classroom has many benefits - parents gain valuable insight into their child's day at Treetops, teachers develop a closer relationship with parents and, most importantly, our children benefit both directly from the activities and from the joy of having their parent participate in their classroom.
When Parents Participate Everyone Wins!
Parents' Days are held once a year and these give parents a chance to see their child in the class situation. They are also a great opportunity to ask questions about how things operate. Further, each child's progress is recorded and shared with parents on a regular basis. However, parents are always welcome to bring any area of concern to the attention of staff as they feel necessary - open communication being the key to harmony.
Treetops is a parent-run school and as such is unable to operate without the full support of all families within the school community. Commitment is a life skill our children need to learn and they learn most effectively by following our example, so please attend any functions and events organised by the school.
Finally, we all have special skills that can benefit our school - please don't wait to be asked, your help is always appreciated.
Please give Treetops
