What Chaz Yee says:
Teaching has always been my passion since young. Imparting knowledge to children, parents and teachers is something that I have been doing for the past few years. I derive great sense of satisfaction in sharing my knowledge of what real education should be with everyone. When I read my Diploma in Montessori, it has further enahanced my knowledge in Psychology and opened my eyes in the world of Early Childhood Education. 0 to 6 years old are the best years for children to learn to be independent, be disciplined and develop concentration level. Hence, this alerted me to look for a pre-school that can give a Whole-Child-Education to my children, nieces and nephews. In the end, I did not find one. Hence, I set up one.

What Latifah says:
I have been working in the Montessori environment for 9 years and I am still amazed at how children learn and develop various skills using the step-by-step Montessori methods. I derive a great sense of satisfaction when the children know how to read and spell and do mathematical sums all by themselves, and they often ask for more! This is the "magic" of Montessori, children love to learn. Furthermore, as Montessori teaches children more than the usual academic subjects, I learn a lot throughout the years of teaching in Montessori schools.

What Margaret says:
I have been working in a proper Montessori school for 10 years. Throughout these years, I am amazed at how a sensitive period is so important to a child and children are always encouraged to work at the pace that is right for them. There are no grades or tests, children are never in competition with one another. I believe children have a natural spontaneous goodness and love, a natural desire to learn and work, if we can give them exactly the right conditions and right help.
