Toby says, December 18, 2020

The past year has been a hard one for us all, but from an educational point of view it has been even more damaging. Unfortunately the proof will only be seen a few years down the road. The periods of life from 0-3 and 3-6 years are fundamental to healthy development and the opportunities for growth. The new normal seems to be online classes, which of course have merit for some Primary and Secondary school teaching, but for Toddlers and KG Kids, the effects of learning through online lessons are lacking in many crucial areas. They simply do not give the developing child what he needs.

Social skills, language, fine and gross motor skills, logical reasoning, focus, concentration and opportunities for growth are all at the forefront of development for 0-3 and 3-6 year olds. Once the opportunity for growth and refinement is lost, the natural learning abilities of the child are diminished. The results of the last years education failure will be seen in the next few years and it may come as a surprise to many – But it really shouldn’t!

In a year where there is monumental change and growth for all 0-5 year olds, many children received around 100 days of school followed by lockdowns, isolation from social activities and the new normal of Zoom. None of which is conducive or matching with what they need… Just because something becomes ‘normal’ doesn’t mean it is good for you!!

At Kids Channel we have designed a number of options to help with the issues outlined above.

Parents and Carers
- Montessori and child Development Training

We will go through the Montessori Philosophy and the basics of Child Development – We will look at how you can easily implement ideas and practices into your daily lives. The course will help explain the complexities and needs of the child and how best to engage and help his natural developmental urges. With a household all understanding and following the same philosophy, your child will have less barriers to success and more opportunities to thrive. Sessions can be held in our Centre or your homes.

Montessori Activities and Materials.
Philosophy and Practical Training

We have put two sets of Materials together perfect for Toddlers and KG kids. The sets cover the 4 main areas of Practical Life, Sensorial Education, Language and Maths. We will train your household of primary carers how to use them and WHY. At this age Toddlers change so quickly and it’s more about how they do things rather than what they do. Gain a real understanding of what your child truly needs and become your child’s favourite teacher !! Arm yourself with the knowledge of Montessori. Simply the best start for your child and a way to bond and learn together. Montessori Education works so well because it is based on what children NEED to develop their full potential.

Our experienced teachers can deliver Montessori to you!! Our classes are 2 hours long and suitable for 3-6 children from 14 Months to 6 Years old. We have many options available and can offer a real alternative to Playgroups/Pre Nursery and KG Classes. All tried and tested in Kids Channel over the past 18 Years! Don’t let the learning stop – call us for more info and to see how we can make a real difference to your childs’ future!

All our courses are designed to build the child’s foundations for all their future learning. Once they have built this strong, confident, structured understanding of their surroundings, they are prepared and capable of succeeding not only at their academic studies, but at all aspects of their life.

It is hard to stress enough how fundamentally important this age is for a healthy future, and it will be very interesting to see the effects in the coming years. In the mean time we will continue to find the best Educational solutions for your children.😊

0-3歲和3-6歲的生命週期對兒童成長和健康發展至為重要

0-3歲和3-6歲的生命週期對兒童成長和健康發展至為重要 Toby says, July 26, 2021 在過去一年,對我們所有人來說都是艱難的一年,但從教育角度來看,不幸的是,這破壞性將會在幾年後出現。 0-3歲和3-6歲的生命週期對兒童成長和健康發展至為重要。在線課程看似是新的常態,這當然對某些中小學有好處,但對幼兒和幼稚園來說,通過在線學習缺乏關鍵的效果。在線課程根本沒有給正在成長的孩子提供他所需要的東西。  社會技能,語言,精細和粗略的運動技能,邏輯推理,專注力和成長都在0-3歲和3-6歲的發展中處於前列。如果孩子一旦錯過這重要時刻,他們的自然學習能力就會減弱。對未來教育將做成不良的後果,這可能令許多人感到驚訝 – 但這確實會發生的!  所有0-5歲的孩子在這年都經歷巨大的變化,許多孩子上不到100天學校的課,就被停課,與社交活動隔離並改為線上學習。這變成理所當然,但對成長中的孩子幫助不大及沒有好處! 幼兒的變化和發展比他們一生中任何時候為多。他們的大腦在不斷成長,並根據自己的見解和行為建立聯繫。遊戲遊戲固然可以充實並為他們提供發展的機會,但要最有利地利用他們的發展潛力,蒙特梭利創造了一個環境,使孩子有更大的空間進行探索和學習的自由。蒙特梭利教給孩子們如何做事,怎樣與他人互動及培養所需的專注力和精緻技巧的指南。 傳統的遊戲小組無法提供孩子探索環境和需求技能,這個年齡階段的孩子變化如此之快,興趣和內在的發展如此多樣化。蒙特梭利針對孩子在這些成長時期,設計了許多活動和合適的環境,以供探索和實踐,並發揮其最大潛力所需的技能。 幼兒需要在遊戲中重複多次以實踐並完善他們的興趣和技能,並需要接觸新的變化歷程,以幫助他們理解所探索的世界。上課及每日時間表應為孩子提供這兩個重要因素。    他們需要 : 探索的時間 聆聽的時間 行動前思考的時間 鍛煉肢體靈巧的時間 在安全環境中體驗新事物的時間 觀察的時間 重複的時間
