Finding the right school for your child is a real challenge for parents. One size definitely ‘does not fit all’. Some possible questions may be about the size of the school; the mode with which discipline is managed; the variety of subjects and the rigour with which progress is assessed. These questions are only a few that are often asked in an interview when applying for an enrolment.
Another area that can become an unwanted challenge for parents is the tedious and at times contentious ‘homework’. Children and parents do not want to spend afternoons arguing about how and what is required to complete work presented at school.
The time spent at school should be a time of exploration, excitement, fun and learning how to learn. Belonging to an environment that allows for prioritising tasks and being accountable for work completed; knowing that there are two adults in the class that are available to guide or teach provides a less stressful day for your child and promotes motivation and engagement.
An answer to many of these questions is to visit the Caboolture Montessori School and view personally how learning can be engaging, self-directed, explorative and yet require academic rigour. This is important for preparing your child for the next step in their learning journey.
When children are engaged, empowered to choose their mode of learning and given responsibilities, they then perform highly and ARE HAPPY.
