The Montessori Method
One Approach to Early Childhood Education

 

1. What is the Montessori Method?
     The Montessori method is a multi-sensory approach to learning. The goal is to cultivate the child’s own natural desire to learn.

2. How is the Montessori child taught?
     In our Montessori environment the child is given individual or small group lessons with specially designed materials. These are attractive, child-sized pieces of apparatus that are self-correcting. The child develops at their own rate, according to their own capacities, in a non-competitive atmosphere.

 

Our teachers “Control the environment not the child” leading to the ultimate emergence of the new normalized child.

We teach children to observe, to think, to judge. The children are introduced to the joy of learning at an age when they are most sensitive and foundations are laid for a lifetime of creative learning.
