What is the role of a Guide?
At TMS, a child is with the same teacher (or guide) for three years; the child is known and appreciated thoroughly both as a person and a learner, and benefits from a trusting, supportive and enduring relationship with his/her teacher. As a novice in the 3-year classroom, the child is actively mentored by older children. Guided by the same caring adult, the child grows as a model and mentor to younger children, both academically and socially/emotionally. Learning how to navigate social relationships with other children increases personal confidence and leads to more mature social skills.
