The New School of Monmouth County will be hosting an Open House on Saturday, October 29, from 10 a.m. to noon. Located in Holmdel, The New School of Monmouth County is one of New Jersey’s has successfully educated scores of children since 1969. At The New School of Monmouth County small, multi-aged classrooms provide an intimate setting where students receive individualized attention from teachers, learn from each other, are responsible for each other, and gain a new perspective on what it means to belong to a group larger than just one’s peers. Leadership skills and empathy are learned from teaching younger children, and self-confidence develops from sharing with older students. Cooperation—an invaluable asset in today’s business world—is fostered from the moment the children start their education at The New School.The school utilizes project-based learning which takes into consideration the input of students. With this approach, students reach a deeper understanding of the subjects being taught and are often found exploring these subjects on their own accord long after the school day has ended. Project-based learning allows the children to be self-motivated thinkers who will look beyond the basic material that is placed before them.Children from The New School don’t have any assigned homework, so they have time after school for family togetherness and to do what children do best— which is play. This downtime is so often undervalued in our society, but provides young minds the opportunity to think freely, explore the world around them and use their imagination.
