This brief note is to introduce you to a few things we offer to support our families. Parenting and educating our children well is essentially the most important thing we can do for the future; it takes commitment and can be a challenge!
Parent Perks is a parent education opportunity for our DHMC families. After you drop your child off at school, stop by the conference room for a cup of coffee or tea and some good conversation. We will discuss a topic of interest related to parenting and/or Montessori philosophy twice monthly. There is no charge and complimentary child care is available for younger, not-yet-enrolled children.

In the Fall and the Spring we offer this affordable opportunity for parents to learn effective ways to speak and interact with children. The acclaimed Parent Talk System was developed by author/educator Chick Moorman and is taught worldwide. The same phrases and approaches are used by our Montessori teachers in your child’s classrooms. Learn ways to create a respectful environment, respond to a child’s poor choices, teach your values, and encourage independence! Heidi Gauger and Sue Fitzpatrick, both Montessori teachers and parents, have been teaching this workshop for eight years. Certified as trainers by Mr. Moorman himself, Heidi and Sue also train teachers at the Montessori training center.
