Research has shown that learning is as unique to an individual as their fingerprints, and the TMS teachers not only acknowledge this, but integrate it into their practice. TMS teachers nurture students’ abilities to be free-thinking, independent, passionate, and intrinsically motivated from such a young age. As a parent, I truly appreciate that my daughter is known – not just by her teachers, but by her classmates, the school leaders and other parents. The teachers at the school instils students with a deep sense of empathy, that encourages them to question and wonder, and to strive not just for success, but significance, which TMS defines as goodness and excellence. The teachers and classroom assistants that we have had are excellent communicators and make themselves available when I would like to discuss something. On many occasions the teachers have provided us with tips and tricks to help deal with all things that come with growing toddlers (which is quite an adventure!) from potty training to bedtime routines. I find that when you as a parent communicate with the teachers, it is really helpful because it provides a bridge between home and school. The teachers are so knowledgeable about child development and are aware of the sensitive development periods of their students. This is very evident when you see the growth of the students from starting in September to holiday break in December. When looking back from the end of the school year, it is even more astonishing to see how much the children have blossomed.
