What is Montessori education, and how does it differ from traditional education?Montessori education is a child-centered approach developed by Dr. Maria Montessori. It emphasizes hands-on, individualized learning within multi-age classrooms. Children are guided by trained Montessori teachers, who provide materials and experiences to help them explore and learn at their own pace. This approach fosters independence, critical thinking, and a lifelong love of learning, differing from more traditional, teacher-led education models.
What is the enrollment process for MOLO Bilingual Montessori School?The enrollment process starts with submitting an application, followed by being placed on a program-specific waitlist. As spots become available, families are invited for an interview to ensure a good fit between the school and the family. Upon acceptance, parents complete an enrollment package and submit the necessary fees to secure their child's spot. We strive to make this process as smooth and transparent as possible.
How does the bilingual program at MOLO enhance a child’s education?MOLO’s bilingual program immerses students in two languages, enriching their cognitive, social, and cultural development. Research shows that bilingualism enhances attention, memory, and problem-solving skills, and it also fosters a deeper understanding of and appreciation for different cultures. At MOLO, we view bilingualism as a gift that prepares students to be empathetic and effective global citizens.
What languages are offered in the bilingual program?At MOLO Bilingual Montessori School, our bilingual program focuses on Mandarin and Spanish language enrichment, providing students with an invaluable opportunity for cultural and linguistic immersion. We believe in the power of bilingual education to expand children's horizons and cultivate a deep appreciation for different cultures. Our experienced and passionate language teachers use interactive and engaging methods to help students become proficient in both Mandarin and Spanish, regardless of their starting language level. By integrating language learning into daily routines and academic instruction, we ensure students are continuously exposed to both languages, promoting fluency and comprehension that will serve them throughout their lives.
"The child's sensibility to absorb language is so great that he can acquire foreign languages at this age."
