It takes a village to “rise” a child
Children become the product of the experiences in their lives. Most importantly, the people they interact with greatly influence their future view of themselves and the world at large. Children learn from everyone they meet. Therefore, MBA functions as a village that “rises” the child. This village includes teaching staff, auxiliary staff, parents, and children. We aim to create a harmonious atmosphere surrounding the children by offering optimal learning environments and additionally by providing links between the school and home environment. A broad selection of informative events, social happenings and family days are an integral part of the school year.
Informative events are organized throughout the year with the aim of spreading information on all aspects of child development and parenting. These sessions can help families acquire more knowledge on how to
sustain their child’s progress at each level. At the same time, families meet each other and built on the village that rises their child!
Parent Master Classes
Our Parent Master Classes essentially target the parent-child relationship. Through a better understanding of yourself, your child and your role as a parent, these master classes are designed to inspire you to be better parents — ones who allow their child to prosper in his or her most authentic self. We partner with our own child psychologists and other experts to accompany you on your parenting journey.
At MBA, as we implement Montessori education the best way possible, we never stop learning, reading and researching about it. We encourage parents and families to embrace this mindset too, and support them in that journey by organizing teaching and learning based events and activities. These include guest speakers, workshops and curriculum sharing sessions which nurture shared values and help us all to grow and evolve
Human connections to enrich our — and the children’s — lives. Through the school, parents can meet other families and start a new social life! Throughout the year, the MBA School Community comes together for several special events: sing-alongs, games days, craft evenings, Farm days, Mum’s and Dad’s mornings, Montessori Café…
Parent-teacher communication is a priority for us here at MBA. We regard parents as partners in their child’s education who ought to be connected to what’s happening at all times. We make every effort to include them by practicing regular one-on-one communication, monthly newsletters, classroom reports, social media updates, and knowledge sharing on our blog.
Many parents enjoy becoming directly involved in the school activities, and the children appreciate and gain from their participation. Parents are invited to inform the school about their availability and special interests. There are several ways in which parents offer assistance. Special hobbies, talents, skills, and interests can be shared. Assistance with various activities at the school are coordinated through the Heads of School. These are a few examples of how parents can assist: serving as chaperones for fieldtrips, making of classroom material or helping in the library.
The MBA Café and Library
The MBA Café is located on the ground floor of our school and is a unique space reserved for parents. It is a meeting place for informal and formal occasions including workshops, information sessions, and meetings. It can also be the place for parents to borrow and read a book and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee. All parents of MBA are welcome. Friends and associates are also welcome to the Café for special events and information sessions.
The MBA Library is situated in the MBA Café. We endeavor to have a good selection of books available to parents relating to the ages of birth to 12 years old. Montessori related books, as well as references specific to child development and parenting approaches, are available.
