Phase-In Rationale

The transition into the school year is inevitably an effortful one. Acclimating to a new routine is difficult for anyone at any age, and is often the first such change in your child’s life. We take this momentous time in your family’s life very seriously, and we strive to make it as smooth and supported as possible.

As we’ve considered the many theories and potential schedules for phasing the children into their classrooms, we’ve concluded that the ideal practice is to make the transition as decisive and brief as possible. With the aid of our expert and compassionate staff, we are confident that we can support your child in such a way that they will feel safe, excited, and joyful very quickly after joining our community.

The Great Work Montessori community prides itself on its emphatic celebration of the individuality of each child in all their uniqueness and diversity. In this regard we  recognize that every child will experience this transition differently, and we welcome questions and discussion concerning your child’s unique needs during the phase-in period. At Great Work Montessori, every child can become a courageous and joyful agent of peace.
