We let our students read at four, and by five years old, they start learning ‘mengeja’ (Bahasa Melayu) without memorizing the word beforehand.
They learn to be independent. The ability to write for a child develops slowly and gradually.
By six years old, they can ‘mengeja’ and make simple comprehension.
Good job, everyone.

In a Montessori classroom, there is no timetable for lessons. The children are self-driven by their inner timetables. They have the freedom to choose their work. And sometimes, the children’s choices are also influenced by another child.

Physical activity has lots of health benefits for children.
1. Strengthens children’s bones, muscles, hearts and lungs.
2. Improves children’s coordination, balance, posture and flexibility.
3. Helps children stay at a healthy weight.
Physical activity also boosts children’s well-being. For example, active children are more likely to:
a. Be confident and feel like they belong.
b. Be relaxed and sleep well.
c. Concentrate better at school.
d. Get along with others and make friends quickly.
e. Share, take turns and cooperate.
Jumping rope is also an excellent motor skill-building activity. Since kids have to pick up their feet simultaneously while jumping rope, it builds bilateral motor coordination. Jumping rope for beginners also takes a lot of concentration, which helps kids hone their ability to focus.
Swinging forward with their legs tucked up helps children improve and develop the correct posture. They will also improve body strength at the same time. In the meantime, they also train to attain complete control over their balance and hand-eye coordination.
