What is Montessori Compass?
Montessori Compass (MC) is an online parent portal made specifically for Montessori schools that helps with online school record keeping and parent communication.
Why Montessori Compass?
Amazing things happen at your child’s school every day! Occasional conversations at pick up/drop off don't tell the whole story. Phone conversations or in-person meetings can be difficult to schedule and time-consuming. MC simplifies parent communication, resulting in a more personalized connection with the school community. MC makes it easy to share academic progress, social development, and those wonderful moments of childhood spontaneity that help make your classroom such an enjoyable place!
Online Parent Portal
MC is the perfect tool to help busy parents access important school information in real-time from any computer or web-enabled mobile device (i.e. iPhone, iPad, Android, etc.) Each parent website is password-protected and personalized to contain only the information that is relevant to the designated user's family.
Online Classroom Photos
With MC, teachers can easily upload pictures from their classrooms and instantly share photos with you! Photos are tagged to designated parent accounts, so parents only see what is relevant to them. To protect privacy, only users with a school-authorized, password-protected MC account can access photos of classroom activity.
With MC, CMA will be able to send you a report to let you know what your child has been up to in his or her classroom. The report includes lessons, observations, and/or trackers (i.e. naps, toilet training, meals, etc.) This brief summary of your child's day helps make family time even better as you can engage your child(ren) in a real conversation about their school day!
Online Montessori Progress Reports
Understanding your child's progress in the Montessori classroom can be difficult. MC makes it easy for you to see tangible evidence of your child's academic and social development in a very easy-to-read, concise format. MC's comprehensive Online Montessori Progress Reports compile all of the lessons presented to the student over the course of a semester and include personalized notes from the teacher. You can then view student progress reports on the web or download a print-friendly PDF.
Montessori Materials Photos & Descriptions
There are many reasons why you chose a Montessori education for your child(ren). Not all parents truly understand what the Montessori method is all about. There is a lot of unique terminology used in the Montessori classroom that can be difficult to get used to. MC aims to help educate parents alongside the child by sharing photos & descriptions of common Montessori works. Increased awareness of the many benefits of a Montessori education leads to increased appreciation. The end goal is to help turn you into advocates for your school and the Montessori community!
Online School Directory
MC makes it easy to connect with other parents! If you ever need to communicate with other parents about a birthday party, play date, or other event MC allows you to send a message to other parents. This message is sent within Montessori Compass - not email. Therefore, all personal information (email addresses, phone numbers, etc.) is always kept confidential. This allows us to leave up to you what information you would like to share and with whom.
