We encourage MSLF parents to engage with MSLF@Home at a level that works for their daily home life. Many are currently struggling to work and juggle distance learning. That’s why our approach is flexible, not mandatory, offering families multiple ways to connect with teachers, academic work, and classmates.
While no MSLF teacher ever imagined transforming her classroom into Zoom meetings, video lessons, and postmarked materials packages, the overwhelming positive parent feedback we’ve received to date confirms the strength of our unique distance learning among peer institutions. MSLF teachers and staff remain fully committed to offering our children an exceptional Montessori education, and individualized learning experience. At a time when life feels anything but normal, MSLF@Home offers MSLF children a sense of consistency, continuity, and community.
