Teacher-guided work but central to student's interest.
As we navigate through these unprecedented and rapidly changing times of the Covid-19 pandemic, we at Mother Goose are challenged to reimagine education because what we once knew and felt comfortable with as normal no longer exists. We therefore have no choice but to proactively respond to the " new normal" education landscape in order to continue with our mission of serving the educational needs of young people.
Mother Goose Schools' response to the needed shift from face-to-face classroom learning to distance/remote learning is alt (Alternative Learning).
Below please find our answers to frequently asked questions about alt:
In crafting alt Learning, we acknowledge the need for flexibility and the likelihood that we will make adjustments as we move forward. Our dedicated and experienced faculty are approaching this period with creativity, resilience, and a “maker mindset,” and they remain ever-ready to pivot to maximize the benefits of this unique educational moment. We are confident that our students’ experience in a Montessori-rooted environment like Mother Goose’s, which has empowered them to pursue their curiosity, to persist in their search for understanding and mastery, and to practice empathy, has put them in a strong position to adapt to learning from home.
Please remind your children that their work is important, that they have choice in their work, and that they should take pride in their work. And, please remember as parents to appreciate their resiliency and to watch them apply themselves with joy and satisfaction. Thank you for your continued trust in Mother Goose and please let me or the teachers know how home learning is going for you and your child. Your feedback will be invaluable as we monitor and tweak our plans. Please stay safe and healthy. And may God bless us all!
