Why should my child continue with Montessori education?
In the Montessori environment, the student is presented with endless opportunities to develop academic skills with the aid of self-correcting materials in a prepared setting. Each succeeding year, the student can move into more challenging academic areas. In this supportive, exciting environment he or she develops concentration, self-discipline, a sense of order, and persistence in completing a task. As a result, creative self-expression and a love of learning develops. These empowering habits enable our students to excel in life.
Livingston Montessori School educates students from preschool all the way through 12th grade.
As the beginning of a new school year approaches, some students may have transitions which can concern parents. These suggestions will ease the transition for your student:
Meet the Teacher -- If at all possible, meet the new teacher with your student. Children can become stressed when they don't know what to expect. Meeting the new teacher can help by answering some simple questions. You and your student could setup an appointment and meet the teacher at your convenience.
Preview the Class -- If your student is not familiar with his/her new class, our office staff would be happy to arrange several 'visits.'
Discuss Concerns -- Moving to a new environment may bring some concerns for your student. even enthusiastic children may have some questions. Talk with your student about what they can expect and what they will be doing. some friends will remain the same and some work will remain the same. This provides a sense of familiarity. Everyone involved wants your child to be successful.
Change is Good -- Change can be positive. Even with an incredible past experience, the next experience should be even more rewarding and fulfilling for your student.
Transition times tend to bring up issues that are not dealt with on an everyday basis. Use some of the techniques above to assist your student. Learning to handle new situations now will help your child deal with changes later in life. If you have any questions or concerns about your student's transition, please speak with a teacher or call the office.
