Life is never truly simple—though adults seem to forget that as they grow up. Children face numerous stressors and challenges throughout their youth, such as going to a school they might not like, facing bullies, following unsavory rules, or witnessing abusive relationships and other traumas. With the pressure to excel being placed on children at an early point in their lives, it is no wonder many develop anxiety and depression and know nothing about how to manage it. Teaching mindfulness to children is one way to help children cope with stress and promote a peaceful mindset.

As anyone who follows the Montessori educational model will agree: Children are creatures of pure imagination and play. At Kaban Montessori School in Mississauga, we ensure that we create an environment to foster growth, independence, and imagination. Curious minds can see the world without leaving the safety of the room. With the flexibility to let their curiosity guide them, children can learn on their own if their minds are allowed to roam. Yet, with the rise of co-dependency on technology, children are becoming less and less aware of their imaginative powers and potentially receiving negative influences from too much screen time.
Parents always want the best to happen for their children, and good nutrition is no exception. What your child eats today will have a lasting impact on their health tomorrow. This is because, eating healthy can enhance the growth and development of your child’s physical and mental capabilities, while also warding off potential health issues such as eating disorders, dental cavities, deficiencies, obesity and others.
Selecting the right school and education methodology for your child is a very important decision. As parents, we are all crunched for time and can use a little help in understanding which teaching style is best for our children. When the time comes to choose which school to select for your child, there are two main teaching methodologies to consider: Montessori Schooling or Traditional Schooling.
