The Montessori Teaching Approach
Italy's first female physician, Maria Montessori was a visionary educator and humanitarian who devoted her life to studying and observing children.
According to the Montessori philosophy, children are motivated from within by an innate curiosity and love of learning. The goal of early education is to cultivate the child's own desire to learn. This is achieved within a specially prepared environment, the Montessori classroom. Each classroom is carefully planned by our fully qualified Montessori teachers who constantly observe the children's interactions within the prepared environment, changing it to fulfill their needs.
Modern research supports Dr. Montessori's belief that children pass through various periods of intense fascination for developing a particular activity or skill. Classrooms encourage the child at each of these stages by providing the right learning materials and exercises.
Within a structured framework, children develop at their own pace under the guidance of the Montessori teacher. They acquire skills naturally, gain an early enthusiasm for learning, and develop their self esteem, independence and self-discipline.
Everything in the Montessori environment is scaled to be the right size for a child. They can access attractive equipment that can be easily moved and rearranged. Within boundaries children are free to choose materials they feel confident and comfortable with, encouraging their sense of independence. They can work alone or with others - it's their choice. There are no pressures, punishments, forced homework or rote learning.
The curriculum covers a number of key learning areas: social development, language and literacy, mathematical development, knowledge and understanding, physical development, and creative development. Moreover, children are able to develop their kinesthetic abilities through specially designed Montessori materials.
