Learning to think critically may be one of the most important skills that today’s children will need for the future.
In today’s global and rapidly changing world, children need to be able to do much more than repeat a list of facts; they need to be critical thinkers who can make sense of information, analyze, compare, contrast, make inferences, and generate higher order thinking skills.
Montessori Education is more than just mastering English and Math – it’s also about activities that extend children’s learning through new experiences and opportunities.
Our enrichment activities are designed to help teach life skills that benefit children beyond the classroom, and can develop an appreciation for cultural and community issues, teamwork and social responsibility.
