Across the country, the private school network has, for all the years that it has been in practice, adopted innovative, progressive, proactive and practical teaching techniques and initiatives which, more often than not, work in favor of both the schoolchildren and their parents. And as always, there are those schoolchildren that required personalized and/or specialized attention. The network of sammamish private schools, utilizing the ideologies inspired by the Montessori movement, is one of those reaching out to parents and their young children to fulfil such requirements.
But the challenge remains. Bearing in mind that these are private schools, there is no possibility of benefiting from free education. Who knows how many parents are out there with gifted young boys and girls under their wing? And who knows how many of these parents simply cannot afford the price to pay for private and specialized tuition. Indeed, there are bursary schemes available for which every needy parent is encouraged to apply. The chances are always good that their applications will be successful.
Parents of average to middle income households have, however, taken the initiative by applying for loans in order to provide their young children with the best education possible. Indeed, since the day they started their families they had been setting aside just a little every month in order to provide for their children’s future college education. And not just any college but the best universities in the country. Because that is what is possible for young children who have benefited from innovative and outcomes based curriculums.
Montessori is one such program. It also allows the gifted but independent young child to simply be himself. He is never restricted as would have been the case had he attended a non-fee paying school.
