What is the Ambassador Program?
The Montessori Tides Ambassador Program connects new families with families who have been at the school for at least one year. It gives structure to the informal networking that takes place at Montessori Tides School in an effort to ensure families get the support they need. New families have an opportunity to get their questions answered, their curiosities met, and their concerns heard.
If you’re new to the Montessori approach to learning or if it’s your child’s first year at Montessori Tides – or both – then you may find you have many questions and don’t know where to find the answers. The Ambassadors are there to listen and help you find the resources you need.
How Does it Work?
New families will be assigned an Ambassador family (or two) by administrator, Brad Hatton, according to the family’s needs. For the initial connection, the Ambassador will contact you by phone, by email, or in person. According to the individual expectation and desire of each new family, the ambassador will form a plan for further connections, ensuring their families are getting the support they need within the school community.
The program is organized by parent volunteers and is open to any family with a student currently enrolled at Montessori Tides. Program coordinators, Lauren Fitzgerald and Rosie Hetman, will work with participating families to make sure everyone is connecting.
