Visiting & Community Education

Witnessing the beauty of an authentic Montessori environment in person is a truly magical experience.


We strongly encourage you to take the opportunity to observe our classrooms in person. Dr. Montessori developed her groundbreaking approach to education based on her keen observations of children and their development in a prepared environment.


We would love for you to see how Montessori works across the Planes of Development by visiting a variety of classrooms within the community.

The partnership between families and faculty and staff is what keeps our community strong. Here are some key opportunities to get involved with your child’s education this year.

Parent/Guardian - Guide Conferences

Conferences are offered twice a year, in the fall and in the spring, and provide the opportunity to meet with your child’s Guide for a comprehensive, thoughtful discussion of your child’s cognitive, social, emotional, and physical growth and needs.


These conferences are for parents/guardians only. Sign-up is available online through Meet the Teacher and sign-up times are announced ahead of time in the Weekly Friday Updates.

Parent/Guardian Education Events

Throughout the year, SVCMS offers a variety of educational events to help parents and guardians deepen their understanding of Montessori philosophy as well as their child’s developmental pathways and educational experiences.


We hope that joining us at our parent/guardian education events will help you feel more connected to your child’s experience and better able to support your child and the school in the educational progress.
