Resources

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.

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

“Parkside has a wonderful reputation in the Montessori community of Austin, and thus intrigued us. But what kept us at Parkside is the love and support we feel from the teachers, admin, directors, and community. Our primary teachers were more than just "guides" -- they obviously cared for my children in my absence. And Joe and Claire are the loving shepherds of a small flock of eager sheep.”
