Concentration is crucial for academic achievements and pivotal in a child’s development and future success.

In this blog, we delve into the importance of fostering concentration from a young age and how the Montessori approach nurtures this essential skill to unlock childen’s full potential for a life-long learning.

Birthdays mark special moments that carry immense importance in a child’s life. At Montessori Academy, we celebrate birthdays in a way that fosters meaningful connections and joyful learning. A Montessori birthday celebration goes beyond the typical cake and presents. In fact, in the classroom, there are no gift exchanges, and sharing call a small treat is a very minor part of the celebration. It embraces the essence of community, independence, and growth.

As parents and educators, ensuring our children’s safety and well-being is paramount. Teaching them about stranger danger and ‘safe’ strangers is a vital life skill that equips them to navigate the world with confidence and awareness. The Montessori approach, renowned for its child-centred philosophy, offers a great framework to educate children about this critical topic in an empowering and age-appropriate manner. This blog explores how Montessori Academy informs children about stranger danger while fostering their independence and self-assurance.

As parents, deciding to send your child to daycare can be filled with mixed emotions. While you understand the importance of quality early education, daycare guilt may creep in as you ponder the emotional and developmental needs of your child.
