Montessori Community Engagement

  • Detroit Public Montessori Community Meetings

    Montessori education supports children in choosing meaningful and challenging work that captures their interests, leading to engagement, intrinsic motivation, sustained attention and a sense of responsibility to oneself and others.  To cultivate this type of environment we embrace a community spirit.  Parents of our Montessori program have formed a community group that meets regularly to stay informed, fellowship and advocate for Montessori education in the District.   We welcome all members of the DPSCD learning community to attend these meetings.  They are an excellent way to connect and stay informed. 

    The community meetings embrace and model the spirit of grace and courtesy.  In Montessori classrooms, children are formally instructed in social skills they will use throughout their lives, for example, saying “please” and “thank you,” interrupting conversations politely, requesting rather than demanding assistance, and greeting guests warmly!
