Schools that have Redefined the term ‘Summer School’

Parent Forum, Schools in NIgeria

The holidays are knocking, your child is so excited. He wants to stay home, watch tv, eat junk and play video games all day. Unfortunately holiday for him isn’t holiday for you, he enjoys his holiday for a bit and it’s off to summer school/camp whichever it maybe.

You will miss him but it’s really good for him, he socialises, engages in physical activity and most of all gains academic knowledge. But the question is, does your child really gain at summer school?

All children go to summer school with the mindset that it is the holiday, they should be home having immense fun and not doing academic work.

Adding to the issue many schools do not make summer school fun, it is just like school, except everyone is in casuals.  Lessons drone on and on, children endure waiting on the clock. Nobody imparts knowledge; nobody gains knowledge.

It’s a progressive world thankfully and some schools have noticed this drab method of running a summer school and totally redefined it. They had the innovation to create a tactic that imparts knowledge in methods that do not seem academic to children.

TREASURE CHEST CHILDREN’S PLACE

Treasure Chest Children’s Place is a purely montessori based school. This summer Treasure Chest Children’s Place will engage your child(18months – 6years) in a wonderful summer session that includes Practical Life, Arts and Craft, Language/Alphabetical games, Numerics, Geography, Swimming and much more from the 24th of July.

Unlike many schools, this summer Treasure Chest Children’s Place lays emphasis on your child knowing a bit about everything from numerics to basic needful training.
