Abstract/Notes: This study examines how Montessori practical-life-centered parent education effects the basic life habits of 3-year-old children as well as their mothers' parenting efficacy. Subjects of this study were 40 children and their 40 mothers at D kindergarten in J city in Jeonbuk province. Participants were divided into two groups of 20 one serving as experiment group and one as the control group. The tools used for this study were the rating scales of basic life habits(National Board of Educational Evaluation, 1995) and parents' parenting efficacy(Choi Hyngsung & Jeong Oakbun, 2001). The parents' education, two hours each session, was implemented a total of nine times. The data were analyzed by the average, standard deviation, t-test, and ANCOVA using SPSS 18.0 program. This study found that Montessori practical-life-centered parent education was effective at improving children's basic life habits and their parenting efficacy. These results could be utilized with teaching sources for parents who train the basic life habits of their children, and also these results can be used as resources for the parent education of childhood education centers. / 본 연구는 몬테소리 일상생활영역 중심 부모교육이 유아의 기본생활습관과 부모의 양육효능감에 미치는 영향을 알아보는데 있다. 연구대상은 실험과 통제집단 각각 유치원 만 3세반 유아와 그들의 부모 20명씩으로 총 유아 40명과 부모 40명이다. 부모교육은 9개 주제로 강의, 모둠별 발표 및 토의, 극놀이, 시범 등의 교수 학습방법과 평가로 구성하고 각 주제는 일주 단위로 2시간씩 실시하였다. 연구결과 가정에서는 물론 유치원에서의 유아기본생활습관과 부모의 양육효능감의 증진에 효과가 있었다. 본 연구결과는 부모가 가정에서 자녀에게 직접 실행하고 지도할 수 있는 능동적이고 주체적인 부모역할능력을 기르기 위해 반성적 사고와 실재 경험으로 이루어진 다양한 부모교육운영이 중요함을 시사한다.

Nudging Parents Towards Parent Education Emails

Available from: St. Catherine University

Abstract/Notes: This research studied the effects three different styles of email content has on sustained parent interest. Emailing is a cost-effective way of offering parents a glimpse inside their child’s classroom; but if parents do not engage with the emails or correspond with the teacher, the effort may be ineffective.. Over six weeks, 81 primary (3 to 6 years-old) parents at a small suburban Montessori school received one of three weekly emails containing photos or text intended to teach parents about Montessori education. The data suggests parents value photos rather than text. Teachers may see sustained engagement by sending regular photo-heavy emails of a number of children working followed by a brief caption. Text-heavy emails meant to describe the Montessori principles or materials should be created in advance, and be easily replicable and customized.

Available from: St. Catherine University

Abstract/Notes: This study sought the effects of educating parents on Dr. Maria Montessori's first plane of development in a mixed-age kindergarten classroom in Southern California, USA. Students withdrawing before completing the Montessori kindergarten year formed the basis for tailoring an action research project that informs parents about the importance of Montessori's first plane of development through the lens of Parent Development Theory. The researcher first explored past action research on relevant Montessori parent education studies. Next, twenty-five parents from a mixed-age Montessori kindergarten class participated in a six-week study. The research concluded that parents' understanding and valuing of the Montessori kindergarten year or final year in their students' early childhood education increased based on pre-and-post parent surveys and hands-on parent education experiences. The increase in parent knowledge resulted in the participants utilizing tailored information to make informed decisions about their student's kindergarten year on whether or not to keep their students enrolled for the full three-year period of the Montessori program. The researcher developed a more streamlined, focused, and comprehensive parent education plan than before the study began.

Abstract/Notes: The purpose of this research was to study the effects of using an online platform to host parent education events, on parent participation, understanding of Montessori principles, as well as confidence in applying said principles with their children. I completed the research through a four-week parent education intervention. The participants were 11 parents at a private, urban Montessori school. I collected data through pre- and post-intervention questionnaires, attitude scales, parent feedback forms, and teacher’s observational records of parents’ questions and comments during and after the event. Through the intervention, parent knowledge and understanding of Montessori principles, parent engagement, and parent confidence in applying Montessori principles increased. Parents enjoyed the flexibility and convenience of the online format. The research confirms virtual platforms as effective tools for parent education in today’s technology-saturated world. Technology is a thing that is familiar to today’s parents and can be utilized more specifically and intentionally by schools, administrators, and educators to connect parents to student learning activities and to support their growth as parents.
