Parent TalkW

Click HERE for the registration form

“The Parent Talk class was AMAZING and it has changed the way we communicate with our toddler. We learned strategies for working through those frustrating moments where our son refuses to put his shoes on, as well as how to encourage him to be independent. After each class, we could go home and put the strategies into action immediately. I also know that Parent Talk will grow with us as parents and with our child as he gets older, so the usefulness of this class will continue for years to come. The instructor, Miss Sue, was patient, kind, and answered every question honestly and lovingly, which took the fear out of asking questions. The community built within the class among the participants was also refreshing and reassuring. I can’t think of a better gift we could give our child than participating in this class and implementing what we learned.”
-Dr. Kacee Snyder Ferrell, 2012 Course Graduate

Save on Taxes

Please remember that "daycare" is a deductible expense. Since Bowling Green City Schools only offers ½ day (2.5 hrs) kindergarten, full day students at MSBG (6.5 hrs) can count 4.0 hrs as daycare (meaning 61.53% of their tuition is tax deductable); half day students can count 100% of their tuition as daycare as long as they attend a BG school the other ½ day. All extended care (any age) and all preschool tuition is also tax deductable. Please email Leigh Ann McKinney, our Business Manager, at leighann@montessorischoolbg.org if you need a childcare credit expense report. She will need a two-week turnaround.
