RMS Focuses on Student Safety, Health and Well-Being
During these unprecedented times, RMS continues to deliver our award-winning programmes to our students. The COVID-19 Pandemic has affected everyone, but especially our students and their families. Rowntree Montessori Schools (RMS) has taken steps to support and ensure our students’ safety, health and well-being during their pursuit of academic excellence. We have increased our hand hygiene, coughing etiquette lessons, and school sanitation protocols. In addition to these practices, we continue to offer smaller class sizes, child-centered and teacher directed learning with high academic and social challenges for children. Our Kindergarten and Prep-ONE programmes include structured learning, complemented with Montessori activities. RMS ensures a strong foundation in the areas of Arithmetic, Reading, Writing and Problem Solving. Our students even begin French and Robotics in Kindergarten!
For parents with concerns about sending their children to school, RMS is offering our award-winning, structured academic programmes to students in the comfort of their home, from Kindergarten to Grades 8. We have made significant investments to our “best-in-class” online/synchronous and live learning programme where students are able to see and interact with their teachers and classmates, from home, through a webcam placed in each classroom.
To ensure a balance of structured learning, and the maintenance of good health and well-being, RMS students have plenty of opportunities to engage safely with their classmates. Our teachers have worked tirelessly to develop online resources for our students that provide them with tips on how to manage anxiety and stress during these times. RMS encourages our students to be active with Daily Physical Activities. Students are also encouraged to eat a balanced diet and maintain strong communications with their friends and families. Our students will also be able to participate in Virtual Field Trips this fall. Additionally, our students have worked on various Passion Projects where they’ve had the opportunity to learn about something they love. Students have shared these passions and experiences with their fellow students. To check out some of these amazing Passion Projects, please click here.
