Parent Education

Parent Engagement in Education

You, us and them …

Your child’s education is one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent. When you are buying a car, you check out the make, model, size of engine, fuel efficiency and if it will get you from point A to B. When choosing your child’s education, you may look at the location and its vicinity to your home, cost, the size, facilities, the values, culture and governance.

At Blue Gum Montessori School, we invite you to consider the learning ‘pedagogy’. This means thinking about what learning looks like and how is it facilitated to best meet your child’s specific learning needs?

Yes, we personalise learning. We invite you to pose questions like: What type of learner is my child? What type of school would best suit and meet his/her learning needs? Is the academic team approachable and is it open to developing a sound relationship to best meet my child’s developmental learning needs?

We invite you to learn with us; as you are the most important person in your child’s life. Work with us in partnership to achieve the very best outcomes for your child. This means in both the academic and emotional domains. The BGMS curriculum is holistic and equally values all aspects of the curriculum. At BGMS, we want to immerse your child in learning with passion to research and discover their individual gifts and talents. We recognise that one learning style doesn’t fit all.

Come learn with us; and discover what genuine learning is about. The School runs Parent Information sessions, shares its Montessori curriculum and explains how it aligns to the National Australian Curriculum leading to specific lessons across the curriculum. The parent education series includes sessions about Literacy, Numeracy, Cosmic education, integrated studies covering Science, Geology, History, Geography,  the Arts, Digital Technologies & Design, Physical Education, Positive Education, keeping children safe, Practical Life, Performing & Visual Arts and studying a LOTE.

By learning in partnership with us, you ensure that your child is best supported to succeed.

We invite you to become part of our community of learners.
