Welcome to a new school year at the Montessori Academy!
These are the days when our little ones experience some tears when mom or dad depart from the classroom or when the child leaves the car. This is fully to be expected but for most children it does not last long. They soon get used to their new environment and have a great time learning new things and perfecting old skills. Many children have a great beginning, are confident and ready on the first day and then about the third day they seem to regress and start crying. This is also quite common. They may be wondering to themselves “What did I let Mom do!?” They also will recover well from this and have a great experience here. Separation is the first hurdle we pass as we enter the Toddler environment. After that we can begin to work on ground rules such as putting work away, walking feet and soft voices. We will also begin working on choosing our own work to do, from the shelf, instead of from another child J.
We are both looking forward to having a wonderful year with your children!
