The teachers are Sunrise Montessori School are very passionate and knowledgeable and possess an interest in ensuring that all of the children are well taught. I have always had an open relationship with all of my daughter’s teachers. They are always available to have a conversation with me with regards to my daughter’s progress. They always ensure that we work as a team to ensure the success of my daughter. If there are avenues in which they require us as parents to assist, this was always communicated to us. We believe that our daughter is surrounded by teachers who adore her and have her best interests at heart. At Sunrise Montessori, our daughter was able to flourish and grow academically and socially as well.
I am very happy with the progress of my child. At 2 years old, my child came back home one day and pointed to me the "parts of the trees" and named them all. I was out of words. I saw him progressing really quickly in his language, Math, and Culture studies. In no time, I see him always holding and wanting to read a book. The school organizes a Parent Workshop twice a year. The classroom teacher will introduce herself and at the same time present the educational curriculum that builds a love of learning of the year. I am happy that there are plenty of stimulating indoor and outdoor experiences and lots of free choice and exposure to a variety of materials. I also noticed that my child learned to explore, manipulate, and problem-solve whatever items were given to him.
My son is, without a doubt, not the brightest child. He is a great kid when he wants to be. He is also not challenged academically at home. So it's hard to imagine him actually learning anything valuable. Going into Montessori school he did not know much and we never spent much time trying to teach him because of our busy work life. I would have been satisfied if he just learned how to use the washroom. After the school year my son was not only able to let us know that he needs to use the washroom, he was able to differentiate, colours, numbers, food, phonetic sounds, shapes and more. I was completely astonished by the transformation with my son.
Sunrise Montessori School follows the Montessori Curriculum while integrating aspects of the Early Childhood Learning. On a daily basis, my daughter learns her phonetic sounds, numbers, how to count and eventually she did simple addition with the Short Bead Stairs. At 3 years old, my daughter is building short phonetic words (i.e cat), reading these words and doing addition! In addition to all that, she is also learning about the world and her surroundings. While we were at the park, my daughter was pointing out the parts of a flower! I am very happy with the progress of my daughter and how she has developed over the past year. This is possible due to the passion of all of her teachers. Her teachers are very passionate about ensuring that all of the children are taught and stimulated on a daily basis. We also have an open relationship with one another. If there is anything that the teacher requires, they will always communicate with me. I believe that through this, it will really benefit my daughter and her ability to develop and grow.
At Sunrise Montessori School, their method of teaching is the Montessori Philosophy. All of the teachers are either Montessori Trained and/or RECE. The teachers evaluate your child and from there they will decide what to teach your child. They will create work that is specific for your child. I really appreciate the smaller class sizes as this allows for my daughter to have more one-on-one time with her teacher. Thus far, I am happy with the quality of education that has been provided to my daughter over the past year. She has learnt so much! The teachers at Sunrise Montessori School are very passionate and knowledgeable about children and the psychology of children as well. It is always great talking to my daughter's teacher.
