Prospective Families

Raintree hosts special parent nights for parents of children on our waiting list. Typically we have one to two a semester. Links to register for these events are in our monthly Prospective Families Newsletter. Remember if you attend three or more parent nights, your child moves to our priority group on the waiting list (those equivalent to a child moving to Lawrence who has previously attended a Montessori school). We look forward to visiting with you soon!

Upcoming Parent Nights for the Summer/Fall Session

Toilet-Learning, Montessori-Style


Have questions like:
What is the best time to start toilet-training?
What about cotton underwear/diapers?
Should my child run around naked all day?
My grandmother said, her children were toilet trained at one. What is that all about?

Join us for a parent night focusing exclusively on toileting!

Montessori in the Home

Create a child’s corner in every room of the house.
Please join us as we share ideas about what you can do at home to help your child become more independent.  Following a short video, we will talk about common parenting challenges such as mealtime, transitions and bedtime.  Please join us and remember to bring your questions as well as ideas to share!

Step into the World of a Montessori Student
