What children learn during their Montessori preschool years will have an effect on them for the rest of their lives. Attending school is exciting in itself, but your child will be enthralled by the child-centric classroom, making lots of new friends, and being given a way to answer some of the many questions he has about himself and the world he lives in.
Whether your child is returning to their Montessori pre-school classroom as a kindergartener or this will be their first experience in a Montessori classroom, starting a new school year or joining a new class can be intimidating, especially if your child is shy. Shyness comes in all shapes and sizes, but try these three exercises with your child to help them feel prepared for kindergarten, no matter what their type of shyness looks like.
Sending a little love from the kitchen is a comforting way to let your Montessori kindergartner know you care. The healthy options presented here should be a good starting point for planning pack lunches that your kids will love while you ensure they are getting a healthy meal to aid their development.
Having a set of daily routines helps Montessori preschool children build self-confidence and teaches them a sense of order in their lives. Knowing what step comes next and how it can be achieved encourages your kids to act more independently and provides them with an avenue to seek acceptance from others. For children with some learning disabilities, routines are the barrier between themselves and anxiety attacks or emotional outbreaks.
