Family Star Montessori values parents and guardians as their child’s first teachers. For this reason, parent involvement is very important to us. We are proud that we consistently receive a score of 10 out of 10 on the Colorado Shines rating category of Family Partnerships.
Parent/Teacher Conferences & Home-Visits
Twice every year we have parent/teachers conferences at our centers. Additionally, each child’s lead teacher conducts two home-based conferences with the child’s parents each year to ensure that every student is best-equipped for success.
Parent Education Classes & Family Nights
These events are designed to develop a supportive and informed community of families. Our goals for these activities are to support parents in becoming the most effective and confident parents they can be.
Parent Policy Council
Parents participate in every hiring process for new employees, and in approving policy decisions.
Family Support Services
We link parents to a wealth of community resources to help families overcome any challenges that impact their children’s ability to learn and develop, such as: homelessness, financial stresses, family substance abuse, or violence in the home.
