Common Parent Questions…and Answers!
Q: What is CMP’s Vaccination Policy?
Q: Should I be concerned if my child doesn’t have much in their mailbox on most days?
We would like to acknowledge that we recognize and appreciate that you as parents had to take the time off and/or find alternative plans for your child for teacher in-service days on March 12-13th. You will be pleased that you did. These professional development days truly do benefit your child. Research confirms that the most important factor contributing to a student’s success in school is the quality of teaching. Good teaching is not an accident. Especially, when it comes to Early Childhood Education. A teacher can never know enough about how a student learns, what impedes the student’s learning, and how the teacher’s guidance can increase the student’s learning. Professional development is the supportive means for teachers to gain such knowledge that applies to your child. The theme of the conference is “Fitting the Pieces Together.” This encompassed peace education, language development, science curriculum, nature learning and so much more to help us assist your children with their learning. The theme rings true, together we can take your child to the next level of learning and the foundation that is built will enable them to naturally have the love of learning from preschool onward.
Montessori in the Public Eye
Countryside Montessori Educators along with other local Montessori schools will be at The Bubbler at Madison’s Central Library. The Madison Friends of Montessori invite you to Madison’s first Montessori Glass Classroom. This is a public demonstration of Montessori where a primary classroom of mixed ages will be set up over two days.
Montessori trained guides will work with children while the public, media and policy makers are welcome to come witness Montessori in action. This year marks the 100th Anniversary of Maria Montessori’s first Glass Classroom in 1915 at the Panama Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco.
LOCATION: The Bubbler at Madison’s Central Library:
FRIDAY, MARCH 6th 3:00-5:30

Volunteers Needed for Parents Night Out 2015!
CMP has an annual Parents Night Out event in the fall. It is an evening of food, drink, silent auction and just plain fun with fellow preschool parents! In order to kick this off we need a PNO committee. If you are looking for a way to participate and meet other CMP parents this is a great place to start. Please see Ms. Patty or Jenna Gay (Parent Advisory Board President; firstname.lastname@example.org) to jump on board! Thank you!
