Effective Partnerships with Families

Tim Seldin

In this workshop, Tim Seldin will explore strategies that Montessori educators use to strengthen the partnership between parent and school, and parent and teacher. As in all relationships, it begins with an attitude of kindness, non-judgment, and respect; it builds with frequency and integrity of communication that is positive and encouraging. This workshop will look at the best ways to inspire parents on Montessori’s essential goals and principles, how to encourage parents to support learning by doing, and how to create a positive atmosphere at home. Seldin will discuss the building blocks of nurturing this culture of partnership, which ultimately benefits the child’s development.
