What makes Happy Hearts unique?
The school provides a learning environment with a child centric approach where children learn to explore and become independent learners.
How do you support children with different learning styles or needs? Happy Hearts understands children have different learning style and need, and respects their differences. Through the Montessori philosophy, children are encouraged to learn at their own pace in a loving and caring environment. There is an emphasis on learning through all five senses rather than the traditional listening, watching and reading. In Montessori programs, there is a focus on learning that leads to concentration, self-discipline and a love of learning. Finally, the Happy Hearts teacher's responsibility is to create an environment that enhances the development of each child. The child then acts on this prepared environment at their particular stage of development.
