I joined the home schooling package 2 months ago. I want to thank the teachers and education consultants for offering me professional advices and helping me to set up the Montessori corner at home. My girl loves it!
A couple years ago I was asked from one of my favourite mentor – where is the best place for a child to learn most of their life time knowledge? The right answer is “HOME”. It’s a place where your child learns the most from, a place where they spend most of their life time in. Hence, the ones who spend time at home are the teacher of this child. Your child is born to be like you, they absorb all good and bad that is from you. We as a parent has brought them into the world and all parents would like their child to be independent and most importantly to be independent as soon as they can be.
The greatest sign of success for a teacher… is to be able to say, ’The children are now working as if I did not exist.’ – Maria Montessori
We were approached by one of the consultant from Little Montessorian when our daughter was 6 months old. From then, our home has only Montessori materials and books from library. The parental classes provided are very helpful and have helped us to direct our child to use. For our daughter, the materials are her “toys” and there are different ways to stimulate her interest in learning. For us, it is a medium to bond with our daughter. We are very pleased about how our child mastered her fine motor skill so easily and she can write on paper when she was 18 months. She loves to entertain herself with the materials and we love to direct her into new ways in the materials.
Thank you Little Montessorian & DMS! My daughter is finally enjoying mathematics. I can’t believe she is now completing addition and subtraction problems… she is only 3 years old!
My sons’ concentration power has improved a lot since we have joined Little Montessorian Home education Program. They used to wander around the house picking up and putting down toys but now they’ve learnt to work at different activities one at a time and most thankfully, put them back before moving on the next job. They’ve also learnt discipline and manners in a fun and light hearted way. They have learnt to say please and Thank you, put their hands on their laps as well as taking turns.
My sons have also learnt other useful skills (useful skills for interviews!) like answering to their names, sorting, passing things etc.. The teachers seem to really understand the kids’ stage of development, their abilities and limitations and have tailored things accordingly.
A big thank you to the staff at Little Montessorian & DMS for making our home learning so enjoyable!”
The passion and care of DMS staff and teachers has made Andre’s transition from the Discovery Bay campus seamless and very successful. We are extremely glad to see Andre enjoying and looking forward to school every day. It is impressive to see how structured and organized DMS Central is and keeping parents well informed of the progress. We are very pleased to see the great progress that Andre has been making: being more independent, able to express himself better and able to better interact with others.
Overall, we are very happy with DMS Central and highly recommend to other parents. Last but not least, special thanks to you Katie, Ms. Asha, Ms. Hannah, and Ms. Catherine for all your help and care for Andre.
