Improve parental understanding of your Montessori setting
We added the Montessori framework to Tapestry so that Montessori settings all over the world would be able to share what children accomplish in Montessori settings with relatives in a more informative and thorough way.
The areas are split as Practical Life/AEL, Sensorial, Literacy, Mathematics, Cultural/KUW. Within these areas, we have created sub-areas for practitioners to easily be able to locate which activity the child has completed and link it efficiently to the observation.
Each activity is also linked to an informative description about what the aims/outcomes of the activity in question were and how the child was presented the materials.
When it comes to tracking, you can use our summative assessment screen to view the progress the child is making for each activity from one period to the next and manually add assessments and refinements for Montessori activities without having to add a full observation.
