The Montessori Philosophy

The Montessori Philosophy

The Montessori philosophy as set out by Maria Montessori aims to develop each child’s innate desire to learn. It does so by using a child’s natural curiosity and thirst for knowledge.
 
To educate children to their full potential, Maria Montessori felt that children must have the freedom to learn at their own pace. Montessori teachers take into account the differences in each child’s learning style and pace at which they learn. Lessons are tailored to your child’s interests. The classroom/learning environment is prepared to encourage directed and independent learning. Teachers guide the activities and lessons through presentations of materials. Also they tailor the pace of your child’s learning to their own natural curiosity and choices. Our teachers mentor and mould each child to achieve their potential.
 
Children instinctively push to develop their skills and master new challenges they face. Our teachers train to know when to stand back and let these instincts drive discovery and learning. This proves to be very empowering and boosts children’s confidence. In doing so children discover that they have the intelligence to do things and develop the skills themselves. This has long term results. Children learn through discovery, not simple repetition. We also believe that children are very capable of self-directed learning. As such, a Montessori classroom provides an ideal environment for self-learning.
 
Give your child the gift of a love for learning.
