Parent’s Speak of their Experiences with Family Montessori…
The unique thing for me is that I am welcomed into that space with my children. I get to participate. I feel like I get transformed in my perspective of my children and what they are capable of. I am learning how the teachers interact with my own children. I see different facets of my own children. I see different ways to interact with them. I am learning how to parent better. I’ve grown as a parent.
The teachers not only believe in the children, but they also believe in the parents.
At FM, our family life is connected to the school and therefore our family is connected to other families in the school. We have a shared stake in the future of our children. Each other and the community. So we work together as a community. I love the fact that, as a homeschool Mom, I can relax and enjoy teaching the subjects that I really enjoy – music, culture and foreign language – while a gifted teacher covers the rest of the basics. It frees me from the pressure and guilt of having to do it all. ~Rachel Sachs
A year ago we started praying about the best school option for our kids. We knew we wanted to homeschool, but also knew we needed a strong supportive community and people willing to invest in our kids as individuals. God answered our prayers so specifically through our experience with FM. They have been a blessing and encouragement to our whole family. ~ Shannon Butler
There aren’t enough words to express what FM means to our family. It is unique, it is community strong, & it is working! We searched for a long time to find a space where our wonderful & kinetic-learner of a boy could find his place in the education system. We’ve found so much more than that here. The positive peer support he receives in the Montessori environment at FM has given him a confidence & joy like we’ve never seen. He’s finding his place as a valuable member in an amazing culture. ~Megan Vanaski
Family Montessori was an answer to our prayers. We were preparing our son for Kindergarten, researching relentlessly for the right fit. He’s spirited, passionate, & needed a warm, vibrant community with strong roots in which to grow. FM came to us from the referral of friends & the marriage of the Montessori system to homeschool was literally, exactly what we as a family had dreamed of. FM is not merely a school. It is a true and brilliant community. We see our son’s future here. ~Brian Vanaski
What an answer to prayers! Family Montessori has fulfilled not only my family’s specific educational needs, but has also provided us a community of good folks with common backgrounds! I love FML. Not only as a believer in the Montessori system, but also what it has done for my family. Getting friends and family involved like this absolutely means the world to me! ~Aaron Hildebrand
We have been so blessed to be a part of the Family Montessori of Lebanon this year. As parents who see the benefit of homeschooling, but who didn’t quite know how to do it well, FM has been the perfect solution. It is highly community centered, and there is a strong sense that we are all in this together: children, parents, and teachers alike. We are not sure who has learned more this year from the teachers, workshops, and general environment offered at FM- ourselves or our daughter! ~Kate Rich
