Parent Opportunities
PARENTS & ALUMNI
Parents become engaged partners in their child's education as they come to understand more about the materials, the approach and the scope of curriculum content.

Parent Education
Morning and evening Montessori Parent Workshops are offered throughout the year. In many cases the school offers child care. Workshops include hands-on discoveries with the materials and classrooms, presentations by students, faculty and guest speakers.

Articles and photo essays of how children are learning at each level are included in our bi-weekly publication, "Happenings". This publication also features information on upcoming events that may include parent education, important dates to remember, as well as synopses of past happenings.

Ways to be Involved
The Hershey Montessori Community is dedicated to ensuring the sustainability of the school by engaging in community-building family events such as the Harvest Festival, Holiday Program, Open Classrooms, Annual Wine and Cheese Social and the Annual Spring Benefit. These, and other event opportunities are listed on our website.

Additionally, parents contribute their skills and interests as needed with class trips, sharing a cultural or artistic presentation, or joining ad-hoc committees with the staff, such as the current Nutrition Committee.

News
Parents can keep in touch with updates from their child's teacher as well as whole-school news through:

  • Regular e-letters from their classroom teacher or weekly personal communications from the guides in the Young Child Community
  • Bi-weekly e-news Happenings
  • Hershey News, a quarterly print publication

Resources for Parents

  • Lending Library
    A lending library for Hershey parents is available in the main office at the Concord Campus. Books and DVDs on topics such as Montessori education, child-rearing, nutrition, child development and more may be checked out for 2 weeks at a time.
  • Hershey Website
    A plethora of resource information can be found on the About Montessori page. We encourage you to educate yourself on the approach, findings and child development process as much as possible.
