In fact, during my first year as a preschool teacher in a Montessori school, my limited ideas of the kids’ cleaning capabilities were completely blown out of the water!
I, for one, was getting tired of cleaning up increasingly large poops on a daily basis. His butt was often red and sore and he hated the wiping routine. I kept explaining that it was a necessary evil and that the only way to be free of a sore behind was to use the potty.
These brave children laughed and chattered in English, moved from group to group, introduced themselves (I believe Sylvester Stallone was at that party; I’m pretty sure Julia Roberts made an appearance as well) and had a grand old time. (I went around telling everyone I was from another planet; well, I had to say something!) We barely noticed the time flying by; the ringing bell (yes, in Japan they even ring bells in the universities) shocked us back to reality.
KB: I would probably describe it best through the music. You would have to really listen to understand because it can vary on any track. I can best describe it how its been described to me. It’s difficult to describe myself. People have seen pop elements in the choruses and the way the songs are constructed. They appreciate the fact that they’re actually songs as opposed to a rapper spitting some verses over a beat. My production team constructed songs, so there’s elements of rock on there because we record with live instruments. We also use loops from the MPC, so it’s Hip-Hop in that element. I best describe my music as Hip-Hop but there are elements of rock, jazz, and blues.
Both up and down. In fact, I get letters from adults who respond to the story. A 25-year-old violinist in the Iraqi National Symphony wrote that she uses the book as a defense against stage fright. And I’ve received notes from adult men who’ve admitted to shedding tears at the emotions raised in the story. Yet there’s nothing depressing or frightening in the plot. I find it surprising that, if anything, fathers seem to react more emotionally than anyone to the story.
They are one of the few educational centers that provide private and structured learning for all of their students. They start off by providing their youngest students with the support and environment they need to start building a strong foundation for self. They take students from birth to the age of twelve. You may think that there is nothing wrong with sending your children to daycare or to a public school system and there isn’t. However, if you want to provide your children with the best environment, then you should look no further than a Best Montessori School.
SS: You mentioned keeping it simple and that’s important. 2Pac was not this great lyricist, he kept it simple and is without a doubt the most loved MC of all time.
Most daycares have a waiting list, so plan accordingly- 6 months in advance. Kids develop better when they go to daycare. They develop social skills, life skills and it is targeted learning time and play. After 2 years there are part-time options and it gets less expensive after 2.
