Resources for Learning at Home

As a parent, guardian, or caregiver, you might be asking yourself, “How do I want my child to remember this moment?” At Hershey Montessori School we are committed to ensuring that what children in our community remember is the wisdom, optimism, gratitude and resilience modeled by the adults in their lives. Here’s a compilation of family-friendly virtual tours, stories, music, exercise, story times, and other activities.

Tips for Working Parents With Virtual Learners

  • Set a schedule. Plan tomorrow today to support your focused work time as parents as well as an independent learning time for your students.
  • Take advantage of recorded classes. If your child is needing support with their online learning, do the recorded lesson when it fits in your work schedule.
  • Set boundaries: Your children need routines and you might need times when you’re in “do not disturb” mode.

What Hershey Montessori School Parents are Saying

We are so grateful to all of the Hershey Montessori teachers who put in a lot of work over Spring Break to prepare for teaching the kids online. The Microsoft Teams environment is amazingly robust and couldn’t have been easy to establish.  We are so glad not to have to figure out the next few weeks for ourselves. It’s also nice to be able to show the kids the schedules and letters sent by the teachers. Thank you again. Know your work is appreciated.
-Parent of 1st and 3rd grade students
