Summer is nearly here! And do you know what that means? The RUSH to enroll children in Fremont’s packed public kindergartens. Huge class sizes and overworked and underpaid teachers. Here’s an option – use a private Fremont kindergarten and get a better student/teacher ratio.
It’s quite true that when you have huge class sizes the teacher simply cannot give as much individual attention to each child as we would like. There are too many children and not enough hours in the day. That, of course is another big disadvantage of a public school Fremont kindergarten – the hours. When you have two parents who have to work, which is the case with many Fremont families, fitting in dropping off and picking up your child from a public school kindergarten can be very difficult indeed. Some employers may be understanding, but many are not.
Much Smaller Class Sizes
At Learn And Play Montessori, our Fremont kindergarten class sizes are much less than the public schools so our teachers can devote much more attention to each child. We have four schools in Fremont – in Niles, Peralta, Maple, and Irvington – so wherever you live and work there is one very near you. Not only that, but we open at 7.00 am and stay open until 6.30 pm, so dropping off and collecting your child is as convenient as it could be. Furthermore, we are open all year round: we don’t close for three months in the summer as the public schools do.
With the Montessori method, our children are free to explore all the materials provided in the classroom and choose for themselves what to learn about. The child can work on his own or in collaboration with other children if he chooses. Our teachers watch each child and when he is ready, they will introduce him to further materials. Because the child is learning about something which he finds interesting he simply wants to go ahead and learn more about it which is why our children progress so well. They learn to have a love of learning.
Our kindergartners learn to have great independence and freedom and when they reach first grade, they are looking forward with boundless enthusiasm to learning more and more. Our curriculum provides in-depth lessons for math, geography, history, sciences, reading, and language. In addition, our kindergarten children learn the arts, music, dance, oral skills, stage performance, and Spanish which will stand them in good stead for the future.
If you would like your child to attend a kindergarten where he gets much more individual attention than he ever will in a public school, and also where the hours are so convenient for parents, then we encourage you to call in at one of our Fremont kindergartens and see for yourself what we do.
