Finding the right school
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 issue of ‘homework’. Children and parents do not want to spend afternoons arguing about how and what is required by school. At Caboolture Montessori School, we believe the time spent at school should be a time of exploration, excitement, fun and learning how to learn. We want to ensure that our students feel like they belon 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.
If you have any further questions that you would like to ask, we encourage you to visit the Caboolture Montessori School and find out personally how Montessori learning is engaging, self-directed, explorative and allows your child to choose, while adhering to a strong academic rigour that aligns to national curriculum outcomes. Answering these questions, we feel is important for in finding the right school and 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.
