Parent & Family Activities
Each year we set aside time for educational seminars and parent training. The exact dates for these seminars will be posted.
- Some seminars are devoted to understanding Montessori Philosophy and your child's classroom experience, while others focus on practical parenting skills to enhance your parenting experience and troubleshoot some of your frustrations.
- Your classroom observations and visits will provide you with further insights.
- Parent Discussion Groups provide information and support as well. Check the calendar for scheduled dates.
Family activities are encouraged. A variety of events are planned each year for parents. A fall seminar is focused on the Montessori philosophy. Parent discussion groups are held throughout the year. Picnics, parties, open houses, educational classes, conferences and workshops will be offered throughout the school year. Each June we celebrate our Kindergarten graduation with a family night at Pirates’ Cove; a child sized amusement park operated by Elk Grove Park District. The Valentine Ball has been a BGMS tradition for many years. Alumni return to join the party year after year. Your participation in these events will enrich your experience at Buffalo Grove Montessori School.
