5 tips on How to evaluate a school

Google it. 

pre school in Jersey City day care in Jersey City

We live in the age of the internet. Any time you sign your kid up for anything all, you should be first looking on the internet for clues about the school’s reputation. Do they have a website? If they do, check it out – what’s on it? Does it look professional?

If the website is the window to the program, how are they presenting themselves to the world? If they don’t have a website, does that tell you something about the way they choose to communicate? Take it all in.

Ask the moms. 

pre school inJersey City day care in Jersey City

Being in contact with other moms is essential to our survival as a species – and I mean that both in the jokey way but also in an I’m-not- kidding-at- all way. None of us can do this on our own. Ask other moms (online or in person) what experiences they’ve had at this school, or that daycare, or with program you’re interested in. Ask for suggestions.

Pass by the school.

Walk, bike, or drive by the school. Do this in the morning, when people are going in.

Do it during the day, do it at pick up time. Notice what’s happening. Is there chaos? Trust your gut – do these adults look like they know what they’re doing? Would you be comfortable letting your kid loose here?

Tour the school.

Find a time when you can go to the school to tour it. When you’re touring, observe not just with your eyes, but with your instincts too. Hone in – remember your gut. Visually you’re looking for cleanliness, happy and engaged children, organization of toys and equipment, multiple adults paying attention to and/or moving around with children.

BE FLEXIBLE.

Allow yourself to be impressed or disappointed – especially if your expectation was to be impressed or disappointed. Remember that no school has rainbows shooting out of its roof, so don’t set your expectations impossibly high. On the flip side, if you feel uncomfortable with a place (even if everyone else says its wonderful) don’t choose that place. And if you do choose the wrong place, allow yourself the flexibility to switch.

Hudson Montessori 7th Annual Social Studies Fair Presents “The Olympics”

Hudson Montessori’s 7th Annual Social Studies Fair will take place on Saturday, April 30, 2016. The fair showcases our children’s academic journey with this year’s theme, The Olympics. The central attraction, the Exhibit Hall, is the fruition of a year-long study that was integrated into many aspects of the school’s curriculum. What makes “The Olympics” a unique topic is that the children have not only looked at the Olympics as a series of sporting events, but have delved into its history, present and future. They have studied what it takes to become an Olympic athlete and what it takes to become a host country. All of this culminates in the exhibits where they have applied their knowledge and skill to develop their displays. The event also includes a carnival for more than 500 people to be held in Zeppelin Hall, the large event space adjacent to the school, which promises fun for all ages. We will feature food from local Jersey City vendors, and activities that include bounce houses, craft tables, face painting, photo booths, and a mix of sport stations that celebrate the 2016 Summer Olympics.

Date: Saturday, April 30, 2016

Time: Opening Ceremony at 9:00 AM

Exhibition and Carnival from 9:30 AM to 1:00 PM

Venue: Classrooms (Exhibits) and Zeppelin Hall (Carnival)

International Day in Apple Montessori Schools in Hoboken

Apple Montessori Schools in Hoboken

It was an exciting week at Apple Montessori Schools in Hoboken where students and families celebrated International Day in honor of all the wonderfully unique cultures around the world.

Apple Montessori Schools in Hoboken

 

 

In the weeks leading up the event, each classroom chose a country to study and learned about their traditions, foods, dress, and language. The children’s studies culminated in an exciting and heart-felt celebration with our families, featuring songs and dances performed by our students and traditional foods from our vast heritages.

Apple Montessori Schools in Hoboken

 

 

 

 

The schools also participated in Passport Day where children “traveled around the world” on a journey through the school to different classrooms. Each was set up to represent a different country.

Apple Montessori Schools in Hoboken

 

 

They learned about the culture, collected a special food, and got their passport stamped. International Day helps children understand how fortunate we are to live in a world where we can learn so much from diverse nations.

It also helps them discover the wonders of our differences as well as our unifying similarities.

This program includes fun and enriching activities such as baby yoga, food tasting, music, and sign language. A separate nap room is also provided and children may nap when desired.

Reviews on Apple Montessori Schools

“Our son has attended Apple Montessori School since he was 18 months old and is now 3 years old. When we listen to what he has to say every day, it is easy to see all that he is learning – and it’s much more than just how to read, write and do math! We have seen that Apple Montessori has helped him to develop as a whole person including development of his independence, focus, self-control, and independent thinking.”~Marc & Caren Murren

Smart Start Academy: Affordable high quality Education in Jersey City

Smart Start Academy in Jersey City: As parents, we make many easy and tough decisions for our children. One of the more challenging ones is to decide whether your baby should go to a daycare or whether she’s ready for preschool. Too many questions arise – about Schedule, meals, activities, curriculum, and the most important is how do you feel about the people who is going to take care of your child.

As a first time mom and an immigrant I was so afraid of taking the wrong decision regarding to her school, everything was new to me. Luckily I stayed at home with my daughter for 2 years. But then came the time when she needed to meet and share with other kids and also she needed an avenue to assuage her curiosity. She needed to go to school and I needed to go back to work. Since my job has a flexible schedule, I wanted a school where she didn’t have to go every day. After all I could and wanted to keep sharing more moments with her.

By the month of march I decided to find an school for her. It wasn’t an easy task since we have so many schools in the town, all amazing but most of them have an everyday schedule. It was then by coincidence, I saw Smart Start Academy. I knocked the door and they opened with a big smile, immediately they offered me a tour, the school was so beautiful and they gave me all the details about curriculum, philosophy, schedule, activities, menu and I really loved it. They have flexible schedules as 2 days a week, 3 days a week, backup care program, after school daycare program and the everyday schedule. They got me that day and the same week I enrolled my daughter at Smart Start Academy.

Cesia Acosta, one of the owners of the Smart Start Academy, told us about their beginnings and growth: “We opened early months of 2011, we began with 6 or 7 families and now we have 150 families a year. It is a big jump in a very short amount of time and I think is really because of the passion that we’ve shown to our families as far as caring for their children, making sure that their well-being is number one in priority for us. Teaching them, giving them a quality and affordable education”.

What is the SSA care and teaching philosophy?

“Our mission is to create a nurturing, safe and respectful environment for our students, parents and teachers. We strive to create an exceptional learning experience for the whole child, cognitively, socially, emotionally, physically, and creatively.”

What is your approach to selecting teachers and staff?

“Passion for teaching is our number one and also we make sure that they have experience with different different age groups”

Why should parents enroll their kids at SSA? What differentiates SSA from other programs in the area special?

When I go and drop my daughter, during meetings and when I pick her up, the staff is always happy and smiling. My Daughter is shy and of course, as most of the kids, cried when she started. I was naturally worried about her adaptation to the school and not being with her all the time. The teachers always made feel like they have it under control, at the end of the day they made sure to tell me everything about her and they were so detailed that I felt safe as she was taking care by a family member. Now, my daughter is fully adapted, doesn’t stop talking about her friends and teachers and she is excited about going to school.

Miss Acosta told us why we should enrol our kids at SSA: “It is Quality education in an affordable price.Teachers of the school personally care about the kids. We became family with our families. We truly do want to know everything about our kids. It is genuine. We treated more as a family affair and we emotionally connect with our families. This is so important when you are caring for children as such a young age. They are so innocent, they are so pure and all they want is to learn, explore and have fun”.

Features to highlight:

Meals:

Don’t I have to cook? I’m in.

“We offer a variety of different meals. Each meal have the right proportions (carbs, proteins, veggies and fruits), we have the kids taste different kinds of food and we make sure they are organic-natural food. In our schools We have a chef who prepare the meals and we get the fresh ingredients from the supermarket as early is possible. The meals are included in the fees, our school is all inclusive” Told us Karlos Magner, also owner of SSA.

Assist with the Potty training: I’m just in this moment and she is doing great. “ We see the child signs of readiness and we start working on it and advice to the parents to follow the same process as we do so the potty training could be successful”. Cesia explained.

Foreign language exposure: We are a bilingual family and for us it was really important that her school was bilingual as well. Not only my daughter is speaking both but also is learning Sign language. It was a surprise for me when one day I went to pick her up and they were singing and doing the signs. Cesia told us a little bit more about it: “We have such a diverse group and it is so much fun. we all learn different phrases all the time. We teach sign language and spanish and If teachers come with a different language we encourage them to incorporate it in the lessons”.

Daily sheet App: Anxiety the first weeks of school? I was all anxiety since my daughter is 2 years old and It was new to us leaving her with someone else. SSA share this App with us where we can follow up our daughter’s day. Teachers upload pictures of what they are doing, every time they change a diaper, every time she drinks and eats. My husband and I were so glad with this feature and definitely helps a lot with the anxiety. At the end of the day we also receive a summary by email with the pictures attached. This would be a great memory because you can print them up and make albums of her first years in school.

The kids show more confident, It helps to low the anxiety, the kids feel part of something, they are part of the team. You have the feeling that you belong to something and that We are all the same”.

Sports and activities:

Cesia Acosta: “Physical activities are so important to us and depending on the school we take them once a day to the park. We have a backyard in the schools where they can play everyday and some days we take them to the park near in the neighborhood.
