Parent Orientation - Early Years, 9 June, 2021
The Parent Orientation for Montessori Freshers was held on 9th June, Kindergarten on 10th June and Montessori Juniors and Seniors on 12th June 2021 on the MS Teams platform. This was mainly for the parents to understand the teaching – learning methodology implemented in school.
During the Kindergarten Orientation, the teachers presented a concise view of the objectives of the curriculum and the integrated approach to deliver the same. The weekly schedule which includes hands-on-activities, literacy, numeracy, reading, EVS, art, music, PE and dance was shared with the parents. Tips on promoting and supporting positive behavior at home, setting up a healthy, systematic and organized routine with regard to work, play and eating habits were also shared.
The Montessori Orientation began with the coordinators welcoming the parents and sharing the online plan for the Academic year 2021-22. 'Knowing Your Child Better', saw parents breaking into class-wise groups to view a video of a child performing a household chore. The ensuing discussion concentrated around the importance of Exercise of Practical Life activities and its relevance across the other areas of learning. The importance of partnering and collaborating to help all children in the crucial years of their development was the focal point of the orientations.
