As a parent, you want the best for your children. Waikato Montessori has provided the best possible start to our children’s education. We have been attending the centre for 10 years now, and have seen the centre grow in numbers and facilities while retaining its unique atmosphere. After their first couple of days at the centre, both girls (aged 3) would see me off at the door with a “you can go now.” They were always happy to be there with their friends and in an environment set up especially for them.
One of the biggest things about Montessori for me is that it is child driven and my children could choose what they wanted to do and when. The self-motivation and self-discipline they learn at an early age at Montessori has allowed my eldest daughter to assimilate very easily into the next stage of her education and given her the skills needed to succeed in a different learning environment. My eldest daughter has gone on to be in the top streamed class for the past two years. She has now been identified as a gifted and talented student as she is achieving at an exceptional level when compared to others of a similar age. I strongly believe her years of Montessori education has played a large part in her scholastic achievements so far. I am truly thankful to all the staff at Waikato Montessori for the support and encouragement they have shown, and continue to show, my children.
