Montessori is an education for independence. It prepares students for life. Dr Maria Montessori, the Italian physician and educator, developed this refreshingly new approach to education based on a series of ‘genuine discoveries’ about children and their ways of learning. She believed: “When you have solved the problem of controlling the attention of the child, you have solved the entire problem of the child’s education”.
Essentially, a Montessori school lets children learn about the world and themselves in their own way, on their own pace, directed by their own potential. Montessori method only aids the learning by scientific pedagogy and effective stimuli that help students pay undivided attention to their subjects.
One of the big differences between Montessori and traditional systems of education is that children are given the experience of discovering answers for themselves. When children find it out for themselves, it leads to a much deeper learning experience for them. It creates a lifelong love of learning as a self-directed process of problem-solving and discovery.
Children’s needs change as they move through various stages of development. Montessori education responds to these changes by preparing the environment in every way for optimal development: physically, cognitively, socially and emotionally. Right from the classroom tables and chairs, playthings, every material is scaled to the students size/age groups.
Are your children under educated or overeducated? This is a major concern of parents like you. The guiding principles of Montessori education are the same across all age levels. But students are facilitated to gain only age-appropriate knowledge and skills.
Do you want your children to grow as a “receptive” personality, just learning what they are taught? Or do you want them to be an “active” personality, responding and reasoning? The Montessori method is interested in creating active personalities.
It facilitates children to make creative choices in their learning. There is nothing to mug up or cram. This helps your children to better their learning and decision making capabilities.
Montessori encourages children to visit farms, gardens and learn to respect plants, flowers, nature, and everything else. They imbibe the culture of respecting all life forms, and environmental systems. Emphasis is given on personal cleanliness, and housekeeping as well.
Montessori children realise their full potential for their age. For example, the first level children master all motor skills and the adolescent students learn how to express themselves. Having given the opportunity to realize their potential, the children become calmer, more expressive, and more intelligent.
