What is Montessori?
Dr. Maria Montessori, the founder of Montessori, based her research on a child's ability to learn through scientific observations of children. These observations led her to believe that a children are able to learn via self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play. Fast forward, present day, this approach hasn't just been adopted by hundreds of thousands of schools worldwide, but her theory has been instrumental in helping so many children understand their true potential at a very young age and who go on to lead very successful professional and well adjusted lives.
Montessori classrooms are specifically designed to facilitate a deeper understanding of language, mathematics, science, music, social interactions and much more.
In Montessori classrooms children make creative choices in their learning, while the classroom and the highly trained teacher offer age-appropriate activities to guide the process.
Children's age range from 2 and half years of age to 6 years, each student working towards self-development by helping one another discover new and engaging activities.
