Overview Of The Ithaca Montessori School Website Design Transformation

After Ithaca Montessori School Website Design

Mobile-Ready Modern Website Design

It was critical that the new Ithaca Montessori School website look great on computers, tablets, and mobile phones as parents browsed the site on all of these platforms.

Social Media Integration

To help the Ithaca Montessori School spread its message through social media more effectively, icon links to their various social media pages (Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest) were given prominent places at both the top and bottom of each page of the website.

Easy-Manage Image Slideshow

To keep the website looking fresh year-round, a slideshow of easy-to-update images was placed at the top of the homepage with images highlighting the passing seasons throughout the school year.

l

Front And Center Tour Request Form

To help increase contact from visitors and parents of potential new students, a custom crafted tour request form was prominently displayed high on the website’s homepage.  Messages are automatically delivered to the school’s email address of choice.

i

Easy Newsletter Signup Form

In order to get parents and members of the local community on the school’s newsletter mailing list to increase awareness of their programs and mission, a simple signup form was placed and highlighted near the bottom of every page of the website.

Upcoming Events Highlighted In Footer

To help increase event attendance, featured upcoming events were placed in the footer of the website, with easy click-button selection of the events that appear there on the site’s management dashboard.

Highlighting Faculty & Staff

A Showcase For The Teachers And Staff That Make Ithaca Montessori School Shine

U

Program & Classroom Info

Page is separated by programs (age groups) and individual classrooms, and each section links to the curriculum for the program plus features a direct email link to the teachers in each classroom and a link to read the teacher’s blog for each of the classrooms.

Easy To Manage Staff Bio Sections

Each staff member can be added, updated, and placed in the proper classroom or program section using a few simple fields on the backend, and removed or moved as staffing changes occur throughout the year(s).

Auto Sized & Crop Faculty Images

To eliminate the frustration of cropping and resizing every image for every staff member, I built the Ithaca Montessori School’s staff section to automatically crop the correct image size when a staff image is uploaded for a hassle-free, great-looking faculty showcase section.

Faculty Videos

This section also has the option for the school to add videos of their staff discussing their goals and highlights for working at the school, which gives the page an even more personal and authentic feel to parents visiting and considering the school for their children.

Upcoming Events & Open Houses

A Hassle-Free System To Create, Update, And Display School Events

Highlighted Date And Location

The date of each event is prominently displayed to ensure that everyone is clear on when the event is and no one who wants to attend accidentally misses it.

Social Media Sharing

Every event includes social media sharing buttons to so that visitors and parents can share the event with their friends and family and help to spread Ithaca Montessori School’s message and increase community awareness.

Facebook Events Link

Every event can be linked directly to the Facebook Event that IMS has setup on their Facebook page to increase the visibility of the event and allow visitors and parents to let them know that are planning to attend the event.

Beautiful, Clear Event Details

The details, location, and time of each event is beautifully formatted automatically to ensure that is easy for every visitor to notice and read without and hassles or hunting around.

Location / Directions Map

The team at IMS can easily embed the Google Maps for the location of the event into the page if they choose to help attendees get directions to the event without any hassles.

Image Gallery Or Slideshoiw

The team at Ithaca Montessori School can easily add a gallery or slideshow from previous years’ events right into each event to highlight the fun and learning that took place for students, families and community members.
