Malaysia is an attractive destination to live and work for many expats. The quality of life in Kuala Lumpur, the capital city of Malaysia, is excellent and the country is filled with many natural wonders. Even the most jaded traveler will react with delight to the many cultural and historical sites in the country and excellent opportunities to shop are abundant.
There are some challenges for expats who want to make Kuala Lumpur their home base. The traffic in the city is among the worst in the world and when it rains during rush hour, the city streets are almost impossible to drive on.
In addition to these day to day problems, there are other considerations that must be taken into account, especially if there are children in need of a quality education.
Fortunately, for those who have gone to Malaysia and live in Kuala Lumpur, there are high quality educational options. Perhaps the best of these is Malaysia’s highly respected Montessori schools. Across the globe, the school has earn a good reputation established through successful operation for many years.
In a great many countries, families with young children have tried and trusted the Montessori approach to education.
The Montessori approach was established in 1907. Over the years, it has earned a reputation for providing an excellent education. Children go through the system at their own pace, and in the order that they wish. Because of this, every single child can follow their own path to attain excellence in education.
In addition to the educational part of the school, there is also the opportunity for the children to learn more about their own psychological development. This is also part of Montessori’s unique approach to learning. Every child is recognized in the system as a unique individual. They are never considered to be just another member of the class.
During the formative years of a child’s life, their psychological development is especially important. This includes the year spent in kindergarten. These early years will determine their relationship to learning.
The foundations for future educational growth are established with the Montessori approach during these formative years.
Children get the chance to explore the world by interacting with real world objects in the Montessori approach. Parents and educators are impressed by how effective the approach is with it less restrictive educational philosophy and less pressured structure. Children who get the chance to be in this type of educational system tend to be better able to meet the future demands of higher education and are better adjusted psychologically.
The best way to provide a strong foundation for development and thought are by allowing a child to explore the world motivated by their own curiosity. This approach is encouraged by the Montessori system.
Parents should explore all of the options available to help their children reach their potential. However, there is a great deal of evidence that the Montessori system is one of the best structured educational environments that allows potential to be reached.
