How to develop independent children at home

As parents and guardians, it’s important to understand your child. Therefore as a Montessori teacher, I reach out to all my parents and let them know that what you do at home is crucial especially in the first 3 years of their lives. You need to believe and trust in your child that he can do it for himself! Do not be an obstacle in their way in order to achieve a task! Give them the opportunity to achieve, fail and succeed through repetition. Because once they achieve the task on their own... they will feel empowered! And this will enhance their confidence and self-esteem. Give them the opportunity to think, to make decisions and to face the consequences of their actions. To be independent and to be responsible for certain things at home. Allow them to move on their own. Set the fundamental foundation now before it’s too late!
— Ms. Jennifer Aparicio

New Blog Series.jpg

Greetings Kaban Community and welcome to a new school year!

I am excited for a fresh start and feel happy to let you know I will be writing the Wellness Blog 'Your Wellness Corner' at Kaban. The Back-to-School mindset creates an ideal space and opportunity for implementing healthy habits and routines. ‘Your Wellness Corner’ is one of the ways to communicate some of these ideas, tips, and resources to help you take care of your own well-being.

 

So, what can you find in 'Your Wellness Corner'? You will see a post the 1st day of every month at Kaban's Blog, that will feature something different. The intention behind it is for you to take whatever works for you to develop your own well-being (wellness looks and feels different for everyone), and to share with your family, friends, and within your classroom.

 

From nutrition and fitness to spiritual and mental health, these posts are full of useful resources to help boost your well-being. Some examples of things you can expect at 'Your Wellness Corner' are:

  • Recipes - Healthy (or not so healthy), seasonal, and everything in between! I love sharing recipes we make at home or anything else that sounds delicious!

  • Workout and fitness ideas - I have some great tips here!

  • Mindfulness exercises, reflective questions and activities (for you and/or students)

  • Health related topics (meal planning, nutrition information, etc)

 

'Your Wellness Corner' is a great way to stay informed and be inspired when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle. I look forward to sharing ideas and best practices throughout the year with you!

- Luisa Mayhew

Life after Kaban

Josie El-Rmady is a former student from Kaban Montessori School. She began her journey at Kaban at 18 months and we were sad to see her leave for middle school after 11 beautiful years with us. Josie is an incredibly creative and passionate child with a gentle heart and we are so proud to share her original song “Slow Down” with you! Click Here for the link
