Montessori Assessment App

August 26, 2014

In a recent post, we highlighted how the Gaia Plan on QuickSchools works great for Preschools. If your preschool also offers the Montessori curriculum, there is now an App in the QuickSchools App Store where you can make assessments in line with the Montessori Method.

Here’s an example of what the Montessori Assessment App can record for any particular student:

QuickSchools Gaia Plan for Preschools

August 16, 2014

Here at QuickSchools, we cater to a wide variety of schools, thanks to the simplicity and flexibility that we have to offer. We keep your student data safe, by employing the latest standard in network security, and by backing up your data both in real-time and daily to a separate secure location. Your data is not shared with any other external parties either.

For preschools in particular, the Gaia Plan is quite useful, as it provides an entry-level set of features which incorporates all the benefits mentioned above. And with our new QuickSchools App Store, you can also pick-and-choose specific apps that suit your school.
