Learning Together: Parent Education Project

Our Why:

We believe in placing children at the center of education, following the authentic Montessori method. Our goal is to provide parents with digital tools and resources that enhance their child's learning experience. By collaborating with schools and authorities, we aim to improve educational processes in schools and at home. We want to build a community where parents can find up-to-date information, share insights, learn, and grow together. Through our activities such as webinars, online modules, and staff meetings, we strive to empower educators and parents with the knowledge and strategies to implement effective Montessori-based education.

Building Stronger Bilingual Programs
in Elementary Schools
