Dear Current & Future MSOSV Parents,
We hope you and your family are all healthy and have found ways to navigate these unprecedented and challenging times. At the Montessori School of Silicon Valley, our focus on health & safety, agility, and open communication have carried us through the Shelter-In-Place experience.
In mid-March when it became clear that brick & mortar school operations had to be suspended for the health and safety of all children, parents, and staff, MSOSV demonstrated incredible agility by crafting unique content that we then delivered via our Learn @ Home program to keep our young learners engaged while school was closed.
On May 18th, we resumed operations at all four of our campus locations following the relevant orders from the CDC, the State of California, the County of Santa Clara, and the cities of Milpitas and Santa Clara.
By implementing concierge drop off and pick up service, limited group sizes, social distancing, and other enhanced health & safety protocols we have been able to gradually ramp up the number of children in our schools every week.
As we head into the fall, we will continue to enroll families who are willing to adhere to our new model. Part of this involves a change in our enrollment process where we are offering virtual tours of our schools to prospective families via Zoom.
While implemented initially to minimize the number of individuals entering the school classrooms, we are finding that parents very much appreciate the flexibility that the Zoom platform provides since it eliminates the need to physically visit the campus to take a tour.
Which just goes to show you that there is indeed a silver lining in every cloud. 🙂
Every week since resuming operations in mid-May, we have seen more and more children returning to school. I am proud to say that everyone currently in our schools is safe and healthy.
Montessori school classrooms are designed with specialized educational materials to provide an environment tailor-made to provide children independence of movement within a controlled environment where health and safety are paramount.
Children are eager for knowledge and feel very comfortable in this environment something that we feel will become more and more important with all the uncertainty in today’s world. The opportunity to socialize within their groups is equally important to all children’s emotional and social development.
If you are a parent who wants their children cared for in a loving, peaceful, safe, and healthy environment that will foster their child’s love of learning and sense of independence, we invite you to schedule time to learn more about the Montessori School of Silicon Valley.
