Ready For A Fresh Way To Strengthen Your School Community?
What’s This About?
Do you dream of a school where every person ‘gets’ Montessori?
Have you wished new families understood the basics before school?
Have a minute? Click Maren’s Message below…
As a school leader, how much easier would it be if you didn’t have to worry about getting new parents to come to school often enough to learn Montessori ideas?
What if we provided you with a private online training center, where you and your staff can join in as Maren Schmidt, Montessori parenting expert, guides your families, each at their own pace, in Understanding Montessori?
Or keep reading to hear about….
What school leaders are saying…
“I see this workshop as really helping families understand Montessori and come to the realization that it offers them as parents as much opportunity for personal growth as it does for their child.”
“I really liked the focus on the benefits of a partnership between the school and the parents.”
“Pricing is extremely reasonable, especially compared to other parent education options we have tried.”
Maren says: “In my 25+ years experience working with Montessori families, I have found that when parents can see the natural laws of child development at work in their own child, they finally “get” Montessori.
That is the approach underlying this new program.
And now we can facilitate this strategy for your school families in a convenient online social learning place where you can encourage and observe your families’ progress as I guide them in Understanding Montessori.”
Observe the transformation in your school community as:
- Your new families integrate with confidence
- You spend less time explaining Montessori to parents
- Your staff feels supported by informed parents
- You have a new online learning environment where you and parents and staff connect, to strengthen your school community.
What parents are saying…
“The format is easy to follow, handouts are easy to read, video and audio loads quickly, looks, sounds, reads great and great content.”
“I watched the video on my phone at home and it loaded quickly and was easy to watch.”
“I like the idea of choosing between audio, video or handout. Everyone learns differently.”
Enroll your new families to learn to “See their child the Montessori way”
- with careful guidance from Maren,
- with a modest per-family cost and no drain on your staff and school resources,
- while you’re busy accomplishing other priorities to build your school and enjoy your own family…
A new family calls to tell you how excited they are to be applying Montessori observation principles at home, instead of questioning whether their child is learning enough.
Great for your families
They will conveniently: Work at their own pace. • Choose the learning style that they prefer: Watch, Listen or Read. • Learn from Maren to apply what they learn to ‘see it in their child’. • Meet in a private online learning area, engaging with each other and your staff in a social learning environment that’s a ‘prepared environment for parents’ where your school community can share powerful Montessori ideas.• Have opportunity to ask Maren questions about their own family.
Great for you
You’ll have: An outside trusted expert helping explain Montessori • A way to observe your parents learning and join in their discussions. • Support for your new families early, to reduce transition stress for everyone. • A cost-effective parent education solution that strengthens your school community and identifies when a new family is not a good fit early, to lower your risk of a painful loss later.
What school leaders are saying…
The Child’s Natural Love Of The Adult: ”I loved this segment. The story is the perfect example for parents to look at a situation from another perspective.”
Watch, listen, read: “I like that you offer 3 ways to take part.”
Parent Toolbox: “Avoid Discouragement, Apologize This was my favorite so far. I think parents will find it SO useful.”

And soon your parents will also be saying…
“Thanks for asking us “What do you want to learn?” I think these questions are so important for a parent to answer.”
“Enjoyed every segment, re-enforced our belief in the Montessori program.”
” I like the personal story and appreciate the brevity…makes me want more, actually, because I did not feel bogged down by a lengthy “lesson” or lecture.”

Maximize Effectiveness Of Parents Experience
Four ways Maren captures parents attention to ‘do the work’!
1. Meet the parents where they are – online. Each school’s program is a private online ‘parents prepared environment’ where Maren guides your families with interesting activities they can work on at their own pace.
Weekly sessions are delivered over 6 weeks, lasting about an hour, divided into 5 to 10 minute activity segments. Parents can choose to watch, listen, or read. And they have another six weeks, or more, to absorb and review.
2. Energize your community with discussions parents share with other school families.
Discussions prompt activity among your participants with questions to spark parent collaboration. And school staff can join parent discussions to support their progress along the way.
2. Speak their language, first. Many parents experience overwhelm when confronting Montessori methodology. To avoid this, Maren first incorporates child development principles they’re familiar with, and science-based proofs they trust.
3. Tap into their personal interest in their own child. The #1 concern parents shared with us when surveyed was worry about not seeing their child’s progress.
Maren harnesses this primary interest and guides them to see their child ‘the Montessori way’. And she gives them confidence in applying Montessori methodology at home.
What parents are saying…
“The handouts were really great with lots of useful, real life ideas to consider and implement.”
“I appreciate various modalities to learn - watch, listen, or read as I like…”
“I loved the whole thing, the videos were great, the fact that I could download and refer back to the material, the opportunity to ask Maren my questions, and a place to have a dialog with other school families…”
How long are you going to dream of families
that truly appreciate Montessori education?
Yes! I am ready to transform my school community by helping my families understand their child the Montessori way.

“How To Buy‘
For most of our families, a strong school/home partnership is a new experience.
Our goal with this program is to ease your work as a school leader in assimilating new families into your school community.
Now Maren can support you in transforming new families into dream families, guiding them in the importance of the home/school relationship in helping children on their journey to adulthood.
What school leaders are saying…
“I appreciate having an outside credible source explain Montessori to parents. They’ll listen better to someone who has no financial or vested stake in getting their co-operation, and Maren’s guidance means less stress on my relationship with them.”
“Very solid material. Definitely worth the investment of $500 to get 20 parents and teachers started with such powerful guidance. It’s so important that all parents hear this!…”
“Although this is intended for new parents, it makes a great refresher course for Montessori teachers and directors. It’s also be a great fit for parents who are already enrolled in Montessori.”

What School Leaders are saying…
“Very solid intro to the material…. Positive overview….”
“This is great. Connecting the way children and adults learn is very helpful. It actually made me think about how the staff at our school can do this to help make our work “joyful” too…”
“It’s so important that all parents hear this!…”
- What if a parent doesn’t participate? If you give them this opportunity and the parent doesn’t participate, as a school leader you have spent $25 to find out that this particular parent is not willing to participate in your school community. Money well spent. You still have a chance to add a family with a three year old that will participate.
- What’s the benefit when a parent does engage? For those parents that do work through the program, you should see a new kind of engagement in your school families. Goals for your program include higher retention rates and higher rates of parent recommendations, which all translates to happy children and a healthier school community.
- What if…? A program like this takes some time to reach full potential, as parents engage and benefit and tell each other about it. We’ll support you to launch your program for good results. If you are not satisfied with your progress after 60 days we will be happy to honor a request to refund your payment.

What is Montessori Family Connection all about?
Hi, I’m Ronda Kay. And I’m passionate about giving children support to grow to their full potential. I’ve preferred working and being with kids all my life – their energy energizes me, and I thrive on the joy of life pouring from their eyes and hearts.
I’m blessed to have watched my 5 children marry to become ten, and over the last decade I’ve relished our family explosion with …. Over 2 dozen grandchildren! A huge joy, but also a huge
reminder that my responsibility is to try and be a steward of transferring the legacy of living a meaningful purposeful life.
But I’m deeply disturbed by the global education crisis.
It’s painful watching the majority of yet another generation wither in conventional schooling under the factory model that contradicts inborn learning desire and squelches growth.
It doesn’t work, that’s been proven.
But how can we navigate the tricky tightrope between what we think they need and what children truly need to reach their full potential?
The best framework I’ve found is Maria Montessori’s methodology. And it’s been working for over 100 years.
And so I want to try and make a difference by supporting schools that provide this wonderful option and the parents who make the wise choice of providing Montessori education for their children.
Why I created Montessori Family Connection
However, if Montessori parents are delighted with their child’s growth, but cannot explain how or why it happens, then they are at risk for supporting their choice – and their school loses the power of informed parent recommendations to grow their community.
And schools are challenged to do their best work with the children if parents don’t ‘get’ Montessori.
But, how do we reach busy parents with meaningful parent education?
Times have changed. Occasional parent education events at school are not enough.
Kids have time to go to school. Parents do not.
But schools don’t have the deep resources required to create an online program to reach parents conveniently ‘where they are’ with engaging guidance in understanding Montessori.
And parents have a difficult time absorbing Montessori concepts on their own. They need a caring guide, just like their children need at school!
What could I do to help them?
My Happy Collaboration With Maren Schmidt
Maren Schmidt, M.Ed., 25-year Montessori educator and family friend, had recently published her much beloved book “Understanding Montessori: A Guide For Parents”. With her talent and warm wisdom, Maren is able to explain Montessori in a calm, engaging way that thousands of parents and educators worldwide have come to depend on.
I contacted Maren and we discovered a shared passion to help school leaders with their parent education challenge, to transform parents from uncertain to confident about their choice in Montessori education.
We realized that school leaders needed a new solution that could reach busy parents ‘where they are’ – online. And our fascinating journey to discover how to create an innovative online Montessori parent education program began.
Our collaboration has been the bright spots of my days now for several years. We connect daily over 13 time zones from her home in Hawaii to mine in Israel! We’ve exchanged thousands of emails, and probably hundreds of phone calls, as well as happy meetings at Montessori events. Under Maren’s tutelage I’ve been able to absorb Montessori concepts and put them into practice in every area of my life.
And now I am honored and inspired by her trust in me and Montessori Family Connection in our collaboration to bring her new parent education program, Seeing Your Child The Montessori Way, to Montessori schools and families worldwide!
Maren says “Starting this kind of educational program requires a lot of coordination.
I’m collaborating with Ronda Kay, at Montessori Family Connection, in order to provide the necessary ongoing support for your school.
Ronda will work with you personally, to review options for implementing this program.
Ronda and I want to work with you and your parents to maximize the effectiveness of their experience as well as maximize the value to your school.”
So welcome! I look forward to getting to know you.
Our goal at Montessori Family Connection is to provide school leaders
with a bridge from school to home, when and where parents need it.
My hope is that Montessori Family Connection will be a pipeline of inspiration and practical strategies for Montessori school leaders to enhance their families’ understanding of Montessori and integrate it into happy productive home life.
Helping children to more fully reach their potential, and parents to more fully enjoy the journey, is a building block for stronger communities, nations, and the future of our world.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children,
for the children are the makers of men. Maria Montessori
