School Community & Partnership with Parents
Rose House Montessori School has a vibrant school community which gives all our families many opportunities to be part of their child's education and to bring aspects of the Montessori respect for children into their family life.

Key person
At the centre of our partnership with our parents is the key person as the first point of contact for parents. Each child has a secure personal website, allowing parents to access photos and observation of their child's development, words, creations and interests at any time. While all teachers document all children's learning and establish close and caring relationships with all children, your child's key person will gather all this information and make sure your child is carefully guided in their development and learning through introduction to activities which support their natural development.

Observation sessions
Seeing your child in the clasroom environment, engaging with the materials and playing with their friends, is a beautiful experience which we offer to all our parents. Parents may decide to observe spontaniously or book an observation session at least once a tem, which also gives them the opportunity to discuss their child's interests and development with the key person.

Community Group
Our Rose House Montessori Community Group is carried by a group of dedicated parents who create lovely opportunities for families to come together outside of the school routines. The community group regularly offers family walks, camping trips and takes the lead in organising our yearly Summer Party, which gives all our families an opportunity to come together in the beautiful grounds of Sydenham Gardens before the summer holidays.

Coffee Mornings and Afternoons
In cooperation with the community group, once a term we offer a parent coffee morning or afternoon to allow parents and carers to gather in an informal atmosphere. Lead by our parent coordinator Susan Al-Khonaizi, who is a trained Montessori teacher, each coffee morning focuses on a specific aspect of Montessori education, giving the opportunity to explore materials hands-on and realising the potential they give to our children.

Parents evenings

All parents whose children attend our school are invited to a yearly parents evening at the beginning of the school year. This evening offers an insight into the development of the school and focusses on specific aspects of our Montessori ethos. The school also offers 'Understanding Montessori' parents evenings which invite parents to explore materials and guides them to reflect on their child's learning experience in a Montessoru environment.

Parents Library
Rose House Montessori Library has a variety of books and magazines available for parents. To access the library, please contact our parent coordinator Susan Al-Khonaizi on 020 8699 9260.
