What we learn with pleasure, we never forget.
We always get asked if our Montessori children can adapt to the local Primary school or to any International school that they may be going to. Our short answer is, “Yes, they can!”
Our longer answer would be, “Montessori children are usually adaptable to the situation they find themselves in. This is because the very nature of the Montessori environment encourages children to think logically and independently. Logic, numeracy, detailed language, independence and social interaction skills are continuously built up as the children work with the materials and interact with one another and the guides. Children are often encouraged and given the tools and opportunities on how to express themselves, make helpful choices and resolve conflicts over and above being prepared in areas of numeracy, languages and general knowledge.”
We have asked our parents whose children are already in local Primary schools or International schools to share how their child coped with the transition. Click on the picture of each child to read his/her transition story:
