August newsletter

Written on .

Our exciting new school year will begin August 7th for our Preschool and Pre-K students. Classes begin August 9th for K-12th grade classes. This year, parents are required to sign your students in and out. This can be done on your mobile device or the kiosk in the office.


Why should my child continue with a Montessori educationIn the Montessori environment, the student is presented with endless opportunities to develop academic skills with the aid of self-correcting materials in a prepared setting.  Each succeeding year the student can move into more challenging academic areas.  In this supportive, exciting environment he or she develops concentration, self-discipline, a sense of order, and persistence in completing a task.  Therefore, creative self-expression and love of learning develop.  These empowering habits enable our students to excel in life.


Livingston Montessori School educates children Preschool - the 5th Grade using the Montessori Method.

As the beginning of a new school year approaches, these suggestions will ease the transition for your student:

Meet the Teacher 

 If at all possible, meet the new teacher with your student.  Children can become stressed when they don’t know what to expect.  Meeting the new teacher can help by answering some simple questions.  You and your student could check with the office and meet the teacher at your convenience. 


 If your student is not familiar with his/her new class, our office staff would be glad to arrange several “visits”.

Discuss Concerns 

 Moving to a new environment may bring some concerns for your child.  Even enthusiastic children may have some questions.  Talk with him or her about what to expect.  Some of their friends will be in their class.  This provides a sense of familiarity.  Everyone involved wants your child to be successful.

Change Is Good

 Change can be positive.  Even with an incredible past experience, the next experience should be even more rewarding and fulfilling for your student. Transition times tend to bring up issues that are not dealt with on an everyday basis.  Use some of the techniques above to assist your student.  Learning to handle new situations now will help your child deal with changes later in life.  If you have any questions or concerns, please speak with a teacher or call the office.
