Welcome to Paper Scissors Stone Montessori Kindergarten
At PSSMK, the children learn in a clean, fun, interactive and highly experiential environment. The team of teachers draw learning experiences from the humble caterpillar and its growth cycle … to excursions to art museums and outdoor treks. They skillfully weaves learning experiences from music and movement to character and moral values. PSSMK focuses on more than just academic successes, the teachers tirelessly work on building the children’s foundation for their future social and emotional success!
I am very impressed with PSSMK's principal and teachers. They have some magical way of handling kids. My daughter is currently enrolled in Bedok Reservoir branch and she's been enjoying it and has been learning a lot. I like that more than academics, they also focus on the kid's behavior and nurturing their abilities. They are very serious about what they do, and very generous with answering questions on best way to manage the kids and they really work hand in hand with parents when parents have some concerns. My son who is in P2 right now also went to PSSMK too! I love how my son is growing up to be responsible, not to mention good with his academic as well! Thought it would be difficult for him to cope with a primary school environment but because his behavioral foundation was good, he managed to adjust quickly! Thank you PSSMK!
We both found that the school taught facts, and concepts that most pre-schools don't begin to touch on. Children's minds are such sponges at this age; the Montessori philosophy understands that, and provides so much for them to absorb. The various stations provide the perfect foundation for those skills, and their curriculum provides the children a good sense of the world as a whole and an appreciation of things and people around them. We believe this is the exact foundation we want for our child, which is to have a wholesome well rounded education, and early upbringing. We are extremely happy with our decision of having Saasha at Papers Scissors Stone!
While PSSMK prepares the children through the years, the focus was on well being of the child – ability to self care, to social, inculcating good values and disciplines. There were no worksheets for homework, no over-emphasis on academic abilities but still ensured that our child reads & writes and does all her sums to prepare her for the next stage of her education life.
