Yan din ang tanong ko. Montessori or Progressive?
Pero parang mas type ko ang Montessori [textspeak!] they teach children independence at an early age, which I think is very important for them to possess until adult years. Also, balanced siya in terms of the child's intellectual needs and effortless learning on his pace pero controlled environment pa rin. More on preparing a child for the future, for success. In between siya ng progressive and traditional.
Ang progressive [textspeak!] social, focused on EQ and adapting in natural environment. They believe that education is a process of learning not a preparation for future living. So, ano mas gusto mo? Ako montessori [textspeak!] in today's world alam mo naman ang competition tsaka we are finding good education-foundation for their future naman talaga, hindi naman what is just now. Tsaka human instinct naman ang adaptation sa environment basta ikaw yung parent na you expose the child to all sorts of environment para well rounded ang bata. Or enroll him sa natural talents niya like swimming ba, dancing, singing, painting...... along the way as a parent you will discover naman.....Tsaka lahat yan kailangan ng parental intervention para maapply ng maganda. You know your child best.
Mas ok [textspeak!] for me na Montessori, feeling ko hindi siya mahihirapan to transfer sa big school. Pinagpipilian ko [textspeak!] sa gradeschool is DOn Bosco [textspeak!] very technology driven, catholic and traditional siya.
I am also considering Early Achievers [textspeak!] pangarap ko ipasok anak ko to Bigger Chinese schools. They have chinese subject at preschool [textspeak!]. Future wise, marami siyang magiging contacts sa Chinese community, learn the language and business oriented, hindi employee.
What's wrong [textspeak!] with traditional for me is they teach children how to be employees, not to be entrepreneurs...
So depende sa plano mo san siya mag big school. [textspeak!] if mga Ateneo-traditional yan. Araw araw may exam, e pag galing yan ng progressive-walang exam dun. Mastrestress yung bata [textspeak!] hindi sanay.
Weigh mo rin as a mother, what will be applicable to him/her to your plan kung san siya mag gradeschool/highschool.
Magsisit in din kme ng husband ko para malaman kung ano mas gusto namin. Depende yan sa parenting style mo.
