DEEP & LASTING UNDERSTANDING FOR ALL SUBJECTS Hands-on Montessori materials and real world primary sources are used for all ages. Concepts are taught from concrete to abstract concepts--instead of just memorizing the "right answer". Arts based learning is used where appropriate. Most students complete an "exemplar" book of well done, neat and complete, colour coded examples--effectively creating their own custom "text book”. Technology, especially iPads, and custom iTunesU courses (for home work) are used where appropriate. PAYMENT METHODS Payment via Money Order, and online banking. Cash (with a written receipt) is also accepted if a family prefers. CONTACT MS. ELIZABETH McCREADY TODAY FOR A FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION.
