Parent Education & Support
The purpose of our parent education events is to strengthen the child-parent-teacher relationships by offering programs, speakers, and publications that focus on Montessori educational principles and practices, parenting skills, and child development issues. It is essential that all Post Oak parents make a habit of attending these events offered by the school throughout the year.
In addition to the school calendar, The Post weekly email will give notice of upcoming events. Parents are welcomed and encouraged not only to attend these events but also to assist in program development and in the support of particular events such as the Montessori Journey. Contact your child’s division director for more information about specific events.
Room Parent Involvement and Childcare
Room parents will also be encouraged to assist with promoting parent education events throughout the year. They will also be tapped for support of current programs and the creation of new ones each year. Volunteers for parent education events will be recruited through the POPA volunteer list as well.
Childcare is available for most evening events. To be eligible to attend, children must be students at Post Oak in the Primary or Elementary programs. The cost is $5 per child and will be billed on your monthly statement. Reservations must be made in advance through the front office and will be accepted as long as space allows.
Parenting Center at the Bissonnet Campus
Post Oak’s Parenting Center offers parent education books, articles, and DVDs for loan. If you have any materials that you would like to recommend or donate to the Parenting Center, please contact our school librarian, Cory Eckert.
