MSD offers a series of unique adult education events during the school year. While the specific topics change yearly, Parent Education events always provide the opportunity to learn more about child development, best practices when it comes to teaching and parenting, and more about the hallmarks of the different MSD programs. There are morning coffees with the Head of School, as well as evening presentations about curriculum. All Parent Education events are dynamic, engaging, and leave you wanting to come to MSD every day with your child.

In fulfilling a family’s Work Bond obligation for the school year, MSD asks each family to attend at least one Parent Education event (worth two Work Bond credits). Of course, you are welcome to attend as many as you’d like! Each time a family member attends a Parent Ed event, they are asked to sign in. The presenter that day, or Ashley in the Welcome Center, may sign and date your Work Bond card.

We welcome all of our current parents, prospective parents, and members of the community to join us for these Parent Education Events.

Becoming a Love and Logic Parent®

A parenting program designed by the Love and Logic Institute.

Answers to:

  • “How do I get them out of bed in time for school?”

  • “How can I stop my children from bickering and fighting?”

  • “How do I get my children to help with the chores without  an argument?”

  • “Is there a way to discipline my toddler in public without  creating a scene?”

  • “How can I get my teenage daughter to come home at the agreed-upon time?”

  • “How do I get him to stop spitting peas and whining at dinner?”

  • As well as many other day-to-day parenting challenges.

This parenting program is designed to give you practical skills that can be used immediately, and it is a wonderful compliment to Montessori philosophy!
