I Went Back To School…It Was The Smartest Thing I Ever Did
If I am honest with myself, sometimes between doing the laundry, doing the dishes, cooking, baths and nursing, I lose sight of the ENJOYMENT of teaching my kids when we read or interact. Sometimes it feels like another ‘chore’ to check off my daily checklist. But thankfully I went back to school at North Broward Preparatory School and got a much needed lesson!
If you are like me, I am always reading a book TO my child, I sing TO my little girl, I am always talking talking talking. During my school visit however I learned a lesson THAT I WILL NEVER FORGET:
TO LISTEN AND THOUGHTFULLY ENGAGE OUR KIDS!
I was so inspired to see the level of collaboration these students were achieving during my visit to North Broward Preparatory Lower School. The lower (grades) school I toured follows a method of learning inspired by See. Think. Do.
Observing what exists to understand opportunities for thinking and acting with imagination.
Through a practice of formulating questions, making associations, developing analogies and creating new ideas and new possibilities.
Build awareness, resourcefulness, critical thinking skills, and adaptability.
I loved the collaboration, the thoughtfulness, the inclusiveness of this method of the chalk talk style of learning I saw. The schools philosophy of expanding the child’s mindset to what is POSSIBLE was evident by the absolutely incredible art work throughout the school, by the advanced kid friendly technology, the violin studio, the fabrication laboratory and so much more!
I realized that this school opens up a WORLD of opportunity for kids to explore the deepest reaches of their minds, their imagination, their talents. North Broward Preparatory School provides a LIMITLESS experience for kids pre K to High School to explore just how HUGE their potential will be. One of my favorite things about the school is that it includes fine arts, music, athletics, student collaboration and academics all equally!
The well roundedness of the kids is evident and amazing.
After my tour, I have taken the time to ask my toddler what she SEES and what SHE thinks. It has been an amazing learning experience for ME to enhance my parenting skills thanks to what I learned at North Broward Preparatory School.
I HIGHLY recommend that you visit North Broward Preparatory School to see if it may be the right fit for your child to expand their mind, sprit and love for learning. I was truly amazed to see the balance of a kid friendly atmosphere with art covering the walls and teachers and faculty interacting beautifully throughout. I can’t wait to bring my little ones to see if this is the right fit for them!
