Question: Why should I choose Montessori education for my child?
Answer: Montessori education is based on the fact that every child is unique and has an inherent love to explore, discover and learn. Montessori class rooms are set up by subject areas to stimulate children’s multi-sensory skills and sequential learning. Children self-direct to explore, pick and choose what to learn. Most of the learning is cognitive by touching and feeling objects rather than memorizing. Each child sets his own learning pace and works as long as he desires.
Question: How is discipline maintained in Montessori schools?
Answer: We at Park Point Montessori don’t believe in instilling fear and/or punishment to maintain class room discipline. Instead our teachers build a calm and loving atmosphere for your child to work and play in. In such environment your child will develop the qualities of concentration and an overall respect for themselves and others. However, if a child becomes unusually disrespectful and disruptive, the student is redirected. If redirection does not help, the student is asked to sit and think about his/her actions. As a last resort, the student’s parents are notified and the school and the parents work together for the benefit of the child.
