I just wanted to take a minute to tell you both thank you! If I ever have a question or concern, or just want to talk things through with you, you are both always happy to help. I truly appreciate your partnership in providing my children with a great place to learn and grow.
It takes a village to raise a child, and I am so glad you are both a part of my village!
Mrs. Williams and Khan
You will be proud to know that 2 of your Heritage Montessori kids were 1st place in their respective grades for science fair. I think you will recognize them
I know in my daughters case, i give the credit to both her teachers who helped motivate her in her writing, exploring different things and researching things. The projects that Ms Metcalf does with her class shows in these 2 winners on how prepared they were.
Thank you for nurturing my little flower while she was with you guys.
Dr. Montessori observed that children are more motivated to learn when working on something of their own choosing. A Montessori student may choose his focus of learning on any given day, but his decision is limited by the materials and activities—in each area of the curriculum—that his teacher has prepared and presented to him.
Although students are free to work at their own pace, they’re not going it alone. The Montessori teacher closely observes each child and provides materials and activities that advance his learning by building on skills and knowledge already gained. This gentle guidance helps him master the challenge at hand—and protects him from moving on before he’s ready, which is what actually causes children to “fall behind”.
Montessori schools teach the same basic skills as traditional schools, and offer a rigorous academic program. Most of the subject areas are familiar—such as math, science, history, geography, and language—but they are presented through an integrated approach that brings separate strands of the curriculum together.
Grades, like other external rewards, have little lasting effect on a child’s efforts or achievements. The Montessori approach nurtures the motivation that comes from within, kindling the child’s natural desire to learn..
