Why Attend?

Engaged and informed parents are an important component in supporting the ethical development of children. The partnership between home, school and the community at large is essential to our efforts. Parent Chats & Workshops are designed to provide all stakeholders with the ethical decision-making framework and language to further reinforce and promote these skills at home. Our hope is that our Parent Chats & Workshops empower parents and promote a spirit of collaboration.

The Ethics Institute at Kent Place School is a first-of-its-kind Institute at the primary and secondary school levels. We believe promoting the process and practice of ethical thinking and ethical decision-making in the youngest of children prepares them to be the most effective leaders and compassionate citizens of tomorrow.
