As mentioned prior, Sunrise Montessori School provides you with a sense of being a part of a larger family, a community. They are always there for you and your family, allowing us to have an open relationship with all of the admin staff and teachers as well. They alsi have a Parent Council, whereby parents come together to discuss about their children, families, and ongoing activities to bring everyone together. Decisions are made collaboratively. We are often contacted and discuss possible ideas and ways for the school, in general, to improve on. I have participated in the Parent Council in the past, and have really enjoyed working and collaborating with other mothers as well. By participating in the Parent Council, I myself have made lifetime friends as well.

Sunrise Montessori School has established a very close-knit community amongst parents, guardians, grandparents, teachers and supporting staff. A warm feeling with a sense of well-being and closeness coexists among everyone that gives you a sense of comfort and love within this community. An active and dedicated SMS Parent Council was established a decade ago which works closely with all educators and parents to jointly organize activities and programs for the well-being of the students. The school council is made up of an elected committee of parents, staff, appointed community members, the principal, and a general membership which includes all parents of children attending the school. The school council advises the principal on a variety of issues and activities relating to student achievement, curriculum goals and priorities, and school safety. Coupled with the keen participation from parents during our school field trips which support the safety and supervision of our children at all times.

Sunrise Montessori has a parent teacher council which is allows parents to be much more involved. If you are not interested in in taking part because of lack of commitment or time like myself the school will still ensure that all the parents voices are heard. They are active listeners and are constantly looking to address any concerns parents may have. Again, they are great with feedback. The parents at the school are great too. I, myself, have made some great relationships with other parents as well through my child. Typically, my child will make friends with other children and I may meet the parent of the child and from there become friends. They have other events such as annuals parties for the entire school which is a great place to bond with other parents and teachers.

Sunrise Montessori School has established a very close-knit community amongst parents, guardians, grandparents, teachers and supporting staff. There is always a sense of familiarity with everyone within the school community. On a daily basis, you can see parents having conversations with one another and is a place where friendships are made. I have made many friends with other parents over the past year. Sunrise Montessori School possesses a Parent Council and has been active for the past decade. They comprise of dedicated parents, who work with the administrative staff, and educators to organize activities for the interest of the children. These activities include, bake sales, arts and crafts for Mother/Father's Day and etc. In addition to that, parent volunteers are always welcomed during Field Trips. I believe that there are many opportunities for parents to be involved in the life of the school.

Sunrise Montessori School is like my daughter's "second home" or "home away from home". I also share the same sentiment. There is a great sense of community at Sunrise Montessori School. All parents are always welcome to be involved in the life of the school. At Sunrise Montessori School, they have a Parent Association whereby parents meet with one another to discuss the direction of the coming school year and what events should be planned for the children. In the past, they have planned bake sales, special breakfast for Mother's Day, family photo's with Santa and etc. Parents opinions and concerns are also taken very seriously by the administrative staff. Sunrise Montessori School has provided us with all a voice within the school community.
