MMIA Resources for Families
As a parent or caregiver, you have a unique and essential role in your child’s development. We encourage you to support your child’s natural inclination to explore and discover — important aspects of their education. At Maria Montessori International Academy, we understand that important connection.
Regularly visit our site for a variety of child development resources that you can introduce into your home. Sign up for our newsletter for insightful tips for infants, toddlers, and elementary-age students. We will also keep you updated on educational news and family-friendly events throughout Central Indiana.
Helping your family adjust
At Maria Montessori International Academy, we realize the importance of helping your child adjust to a new environment. We’re committed to helping your child feel at home. Our Montessori environment is designed to help ease the transition from your home to our MMIA home. We encourage children to navigate their new surroundings in a natural, colorful setting that features child-sized bookcases, sinks, furniture and plenty of natural lighting. Don’t forget your slippers! We want you to feel at home.
We realize that adapting to a new environment is an adjustment period for families as well. That’s why we encourage you to visit our schools to see other children engage in their activities as part of their daily routines. We also offer special trial periods in which your child can experience the Montessori environment before you commit to full enrollment.
Contact us for more details. We’re looking forward to you visiting us!
