Montessori is an educational method based on self-directed activity, practical learning and collaborative learning. In the prepared environment, children make creative choices in their learning, while the Montessori teacher and the assistant guide them through the process by providing age-appropriate activities. Children work in groups and individually to discover and explore world’s knowledge and develop to their fullest potential.
Montessori environments are designed to meet children’s needs within a specific age range. Experiential learning in prepared environments leads to a deeper understanding of language, math, science, music, social interactions and much more.
Each material within the Montessori environment supports an aspect of child development, creating a match between the child’s natural interests and the activities available. Children learn through their own experience and at their own pace. They can respond at any time to the natural curiosities that exist in all humans and build a solid foundation for lifelong learning.
