Parent Participation

Getting involved with Peninsula Montessori school as a parent is easy. Our community benefits from a very active group of families who work every day to make the school an amazing place for personal and academic enrichment. Moms, dads, aunts, uncles and caregivers of all kinds are welcome to join us in service of our Montessori campus. Studies affirm that the involvement of parents with their child's education has a positive impact on the results those children are capable of achieving.
