Parent Resources:

At Discovery Montessori, we believe in a collaborative effort of parents and teachers in children’s overall growth and achievements. We always encourage parents to get involved with their children’s activities. There has been a significant amount of recent research on early brain development that has shown positive parental involvement needs to begin long before children enter into formal schooling arrangements. The early years of a child's life are critically important for healthy brain development, attachment formation, and language acquisition.

Along with providing information about our day care and education methods, our websites also provides parents with helpful resources that can help them find out what works best for their child.
