Some Benefits of Montessori
- A child is never held back nor pushed forward because of the learning rates of their peers. Traditional classrooms tend to have children all learning the same thing and moving through the curriculum at the same rate. Each child has different abilities and interest. Some children excel in language skills while others excel in math. It is unrealistic to expect all children to successfully lean at the same rate.
- Our Montessori curriculum gives the child the tools to develop their concentration and focus. This is a skill that is required for learning and one that can be largely ignored in traditional school systems. A Montessori day is structured so that a child’s focus is never interrupted by having to move on to the next lesson before finishing the current one.
We have had a good year! Muiride is always very receptive and responsive to my questions and concerns. The teachers are very attentive to the students, my son goes to school excited to learn and comes home happy.
We’ve been at Ha’penny for over a year and couldn’t be happier. The teachers are incredibly warm, nurturing, and welcoming to the students; they go out of their way to treat each student like their own. The staff is very helpful, answers all questions, and creates a real family-like feeling at the school. My son loves his teachers, friends, and seems to really enjoy his time at Ha’penny.
Ha’penny has helped Reyansh come a long way in terms of building confidence and independence. He has a positive attitude towards school and is showing curiosity in all spheres of daily life, which we believe is the best way to learn instead of just by rote. His social development and ability to show empathy, kindness, and courage when needed are what we really want to build on while he’s at Ha’penny as it’s the perfect setting for this. The school admin and teachers have been very accommodating and perceptive on several matters and we and our children are lucky to have this experience.
