Parent Education

The Innovative School regularly hosts various programs, workshops and guest speakers to develop the child-parent-teacher partnership further. These sessions focus on Montessori educational philosophy and practice, parenting skills, and developmentally appropriate practice.


Prospective parents are always invited to attend and learn more about Montessori and The Innovative School. Priority in admission is given to families who attend our parent educational events. Childcare is available for all parent education activities; however, children must be enrolled or placed on our waiting list to be eligible. Reservations must be made in advance with the front desk and will be accepted as long as space is available.


We recommend the multi-session classes listed below, which are offered on campus throughout the school year. We are committed to supporting you as your child’s first teacher. Together, we can supply the knowledge, tools, nurturing and support your child needs to become well rounded and balanced individuals. We are confident that our workshops will dramatically enhance your parenting ability to help your children and family dynamic.
