      Hi! We’d like to know what it would cost to have a write-up or an ad printed in your free dsuiribttion magazine please Below is a short essay I did on my Mom’s preschool. I’m a Mom myself now and just wanna give back to her by helping to spread the word about what an exceptional teacher and school she is. Today is Mother’s Day and this is my simple tribute to her, I believe that she and the school deserve the limelight. I hope that you can be just the enabler for committed Moms like ourselves to be able to explore good options in looking for the best preschool for our children and at least allowing this quiet homegrown one of ours to be counted and better known. Thank you very much, we look forward to hear from you!Small School, Big Achievers Tucked inside the quiet neighborhood of Scout Area, Quezon City, in contrast to the bustling scene on nearby Timog Avenue and the commercial restaurant strip of Tomas Morato, is a 3-storey home. In it, a bright little classroom just beyond a gate with a sign that reads: Kidschool – Child Development Center*. A closer look reveals how here is, in fact, one of the very best preschools the big city has to offer…Strong Foundations In this day when getting into a good school is very competitive, Kidschool carries an impressive track record of students admitted to the top academies of their choice. Founder and directress Ms. Charito de la Cruz, her values and education, have much to do with its history of success. Eighteen years ago, in seeking a preschool for her then two-year-old bunso, Fatima, she wanted one that offered quality education, was cost-friendly and in close proximity (already spending a lot of time transporting her older kids to and from a reputable school in another city). As her expectations weren’t fully met, she thought of her years of teaching in Montessori schools and entertained the idea of putting up her own school, finally making good use of the Masters Degrees in both Education and Family Life and Child Development she’d earned from UP.While husband Nicky constructed a classroom, “Teacher Chari” attended an extra course on Early Childhood Education. Spending instead on educational materials, an extensive library and custom child-friendly furniture, she worked on a holistic program suitable for the specific needs of children ages 2 bd to 6, applying concepts from not just one but several schools of thought as they hail from different backgrounds and hold their own worth. In these critical years, she takes the time to also educate parents through orientation and consultations about how they can and should be involved in the formation of their child, committed to make sure that they reach and optimize their potentials. Other than starting them young, starting right spells the difference in how children learn (habits and attitude formed) and not simply focusing on what is to be learned.Kidschool maintains a small teacher-student ratio and offers genuine personalized education in that each student is able to advance in his/her own unique pace, given opportunities as far as their abilities go. The program is flexible enough to provide varied approaches to cater to those who need extra attention in some areas of development. It is also progressive so as to hone the competencies expected of the age group. Kidschool takes into consideration that children learn through discovery by directly interacting with the environment, but there is also a commitment for an organized and sequenced teaching. They try to achieve a balance of relatively unstructured activities and manipulative materials (free play, dramatic play, block play, socialization) with structured but not rigid lessons with specific goals. Activities are deliberately chosen.Work and play, work before play Summer and regular school year classes begin at eight thirty in the morning with individual work period wherein each child works on tasks appropriate to his/her age or abilities. This is followed by sharing, playtime, collective lessons, group discussions, music or art sessions and storytelling. Each day they are presented with challenges and new things to learn in the areas of: Practical Life, Sensorial Training, Math, Language, Science, Social Studies, Music & Movement, and Art to help them gain knowledge, confidence, and a certain level of independence. A music teacher and teacher aides are there to assist; parents are welcome to come and observe while yayas are not allowed during school hours.Home away from home A classroom and playground set between a front yard and a little garden look to be structured yet less formal than a traditional school, providing a smooth, pleasant transition from home to school. Here, the blackboard-paper-pencil-workbook setup is only supplementary to the many hands-on, interactive materials available and better suited for young beginners. The 1000+ library books and school supplies there for the children to use and keep in order are part of the tuition fee, so are the daily snacks served – an added convenience to parents. This house-turned-kindergarten doesn’t boast many rooms, just avenues for social growth and academic achievement. You cannot expect to see a building, large offices or school buses only progress. But, if these are what you’re looking for, then you’ve come to the right place to scout!*KIDSCHOOL – A Child Development Center for 2 bd to 6 year olds is located at 84 Dr. Lazcano Street in Quezon City. It is in the residential “Scout” Area with wide tree-lined roads. The main roads Tomas Morato and Roces Avenue make it accessible even to public transportation.Yours,Marielle Irene D.
