This is my second time to go to Our Lady of Pilar Montessori Center (OLPMC) Open House and Vergil's first since he was not able to join me last year. As expected, he was very impressed with the teaching method and materials they use. We were both schooled in a traditional set-up where blackboard exists and the teacher's unending lecture happens. The Montessori way of teaching is different. Lessons are given in different stages so that those who are more advanced or faster to learn can already go to the next stage and those who needs a longer time need not be pressured.
I was actually surprised when Miggy started reading already during his Junior Casa days (3-4 years old). Now he can easily read a book. At 5 years old, he can now add, subtract, multiply not just single digits but multiple digits as well. In their language class, they can already identify verbs, nouns and adjectives. And the list goes on...
I love also the fact that they already have an E-Learning Module where they use PC or tablets. And they can access it too, at home.
Here are some of the pictures I took:
And here is Miguel doing his part-
And Maxene couldn't resist to join her Kuya. The teachers told us to just leave her with his Kuya while we went around.
