I am from Korea and i have two girls, 9years old and 4years old. My first kid,
Erina was the first member from opening SMIK. At that time she was 7years old and didn't speak English at all.
But she learned English from many activities and Montessori materials with Ms. Heather and Ms. Gigi. They are teachers like mommy or friend. So Erina can adjust well school life and now she doesn't have any problems with English in the elementary school. Erina still miss SMIK life.
The second kid, Juin is also SMIK student. She goes SMIK from 24 month to now. She cried so much from getting school bus during the first 2 weeks.
But Ms. Genna and her assistant teachers were taking care of Juin like mommy. Ms. Genna has also many kids, so she knows well how to handle kids. I think she is veteran.
So now she is a kind of staff in SMIK and is lever up class. Ms. Gigi teaches not only academic sections but also good manners in the school like how to share with friends, follow rules and table manners etc.
I am happy with Juin's huge improvement. So i want to recommend SMIK to all moms for searching kindergarten.
I really appreciate SMIK team and Ms. Julia.
