What is Montessori Method?
...where learning is Fun
The Montessori Method is based on a sensible balance between freedom and structure specifically designed for the young child.
Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952), Italy's first woman doctor spoke of the child's mind as 'the absorbent mind', because of its great ability to learn effortlessly and unconsciously from the world around him.
The Montessori Method provides a pleasant environment with carefully designed materials that meet the child's natural needs and nurtures his absorbent mind.
Dr. Montessori felt that in the first six years of a child's life he/she goes through 'sensitive periods' during which time the child is particularly receptive to certain stimuli. With this in mind she created specially designed sensorial apparatus to help develop and refine the child's sensory awareness. These apparatus also allow the child to correct his own mistakes and thus help him to achieve confidence and independence.
The Montessori teaching method is unique. It enables the child to develop self confidence, security, a sense of order and social relationships, creative intelligence and imagination. It also sharpens his ability to discriminate and make judgements.
