We welcome all prospective parents to come learn more about the Post Oak experience by attending our series of four prospective parent classes in the fall and the spring. The classes are led by the division directors and are designed to provide insights into Montessori education at all levels. Each class stands alone so it is possible to attend them in any order. Attendance at prospective-parent classes and other parent education events is taken into consideration when making admission decisions.

Prospective-parent classes are held on scheduled Tuesday mornings from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m., and on scheduled Monday evenings from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. Three are held on the Bissonnet Campus and the Learning for Life class is held on the Museum District Campus.

Description of Classes in a Series

Montessori 101

This class is designed to answer the questions: Who was Dr. Maria Montessori? What are the essential characteristics of a Montessori environment? What are the four planes of development and why are they significant to Montessori education?

At Home with Montessori: Primary Essentials

Parents often ask, “What can I do at home?” This class gives both the guiding principles and pragmatic suggestions for how to have a home environment that balances the child’s need for independence with the adult’s need for efficiency and comfort.

Elementary Essentials

This class is designed for parents of elementary students (grades one through six) and covers the following topics: transition from Montessori Primary to Elementary, changes in the children at this stage of development, how the elementary classroom changes to meet their needs, and ways parents can support their elementary-aged children.

Learning for Life

This class covers the transition into adolescence and how the work done during this time of life lays the foundation for a lifetime of learning and connections with the adult world. Topics include: the right work for teenagers, becoming an adult, and connecting the dots of a Post Oak education. This class is held on the Museum District Campus (1010 Autrey).
