How to Get More from Your Montessori School
Montessori schools are a great choice, especially for young children. The individualized attention and education your child receives will greatly improve his intellectual development and self-esteem. But in order to get the most from your Montessori school, you need to be involved as a parent.
Ask about Her Day
Preschoolers and kindergartners may not reach huge developmental milestones every day, such as learning how to walk, but they can absorb a lot more than you think. In order to encourage your child to learn, we encourage you to start by asking her about her day. She may have learned a new way to play a favorite game, or she may have made a new friend.
Young children look up to their parents and teachers as role models. They love it when you pay attention to them one on one. And who knows? Maybe you'll learn something from her. And if the topic interests you both, then you maybe can read more about it at home.
Encourage His Questions
Young children learn something new every day. Their endless curiosity will bring them into contact with a variety of subject, in and out of the classroom. At Walnut Montessori-Preschool Academy, we encourage participation and exploration of a variety of subjects. But there's no harm in continuing to foster his creativity at home.
We understand that it can be tiring to answer millions of questions every day. But you need to understand that this is how your child learns. If he is really interested in a specific subject, you can get books about it at your local library. Of course, you may also bring it up with his teachers. Maybe the topic will be covered in the classroom in more detail. Either way, listening to your child and encouraging him to ask questions is a great way to bond with young kids.
