Why is it important to schedule a tour of your child’s new school? Simply put, understanding the school layout, processes, and seeing the staff in action are an important piece of you and your child’s comfort level. At Meadow Montessori, we understand that you are leaving the most precious person in your life in our hands and want to make that experience as comfortable as possible.
To make the most out of your first experience with Meadow Montessori, we encourage prospective families to schedule a tour of our school. Tours allow our staff to meet your needs and answer your questions without disrupting our school day. Tours may be scheduled via our website on the “Take a Tour” page, or by calling (281) 232-4444. Tours of Meadow Montessori are offered between 9:30 AM and 4:00 PM, or you can call us to arrange a time that best accommodates your schedule.
Here are three tips for making the most of your tour experience.
We understand that this is a big move for you and your child and encourage all prospective parents and families to ask questions of our staff. Learn what a regular school day is like, find out about our philosophy, find out more about our Montessori kindergarten in Richmond and preschool in Richmond, and ask any logistical questions you might have. While we are always available to address parent concerns, your tour time is an excellent opportunity to ask questions face to face.
Pay Attention to Relationships
A major part of any education process is the relationship between teacher, staff, and students. Pay attention to Meadow Montessori’s caring and invested staff as they interact with children. This will give you a better idea of what your child can expect to encounter. Many families value the sense of well-being they get from seeing how well their children are treated and respected as part of the Montessori style school system.
Look for the Difference
More than just daycare and child care, Meadow Montessori offers both care and educational support for all of its students. Take your tour time to see how children interact, make note of learning activities, and see how our school can help benefit your child’s growth, nurturing and happiness. Even if you are familiar with the concept of a Montessori school, seeing this style of education in action is inspiring for many families.
