Parents often ask us for recommendations and references for family support, or for more information about the Montessori educational approach.

We’ve compiled a list of our top recommendations and favorite resources, which we hope you’ll find helpful.

Parent Support – Referrals to help with parenting, physical and speech challenges, developmental concerns, dyslexia, reading skills, and family therapy.

Articles – An excellent reading list to learn more about Montessori core principles and ideas, as well as benefits and evidence of effectiveness.

Recommended Reading – The best books we’ve seen on a variety of topics, such as parent/child communications, multiple intelligences, nature deficit disorder, positive discipline, gender differences and learning challenges.

• Parkside Podcast –Our co-founder, Joe Bruno, shares his expertise, wisdom, and passion for Montessori education through the exploration of varied aspects of the Montessori philosophy and methodology.

Feel free to talk with us if you have additional questions or concerns related to your child’s education and development.

“At Parkside, the respectful way teachers treat and talk to the kids not only shapes their expectations for other relationships in their lives, it also sets them up for a positive experience of learning. There’s a balance of understanding and support, and the benefit of being known by caring, responsive people. We may live in a big city, but Parkside creates a loving, small town feel for every member of the community.
