All parents imagine wondrous futures for their children, and those marvelous dreams have their roots in concrete accomplishments. The more your child gets out of his or her educational experience, the better equipped he or she will be to succeed in life. Most children who do well in school have:
- A Nurtured Sense of Curiosity
All children are naturally curious about the world around them. All too often, adults grow impatient with the questions children ask, but those questions are part of the learning process. Children have not learned to take anything for granted, and they view the world around them with ceaseless inquisitiveness. Curiosity is the engine that drives all education, from infancy to adulthood.
- Encouragement at Home
Success in school doesn’t begin and end in the classroom. Children whose parents take an active interest in their educations, communicate with teachers, and complement school activities with at-home learning opportunities are much more likely to do well in the classroom. Positive reinforcement—the feeling that one’s accomplishments will be recognized and rewarded—is indispensable.
- A Structured Life
A sense of order is the necessary framework for a child’s development. A strong sense of structure and regularity in their daily lives—eating meals, doing chores, playing outside, doing homework—helps build the sense of personal responsibility that is essential to succeeding in school.
- A Suitable Learning Environment
Children can accomplish marvelous things when they are given the opportunity. In an environment that is carefully structured to bring out their innately creative and curious nature, children can develop more rapidly than even their parents and teachers may believe possible. This is why the Montessori Method has proven so fruitful over decades of application.
