The Montessori Approach

 

Children are innately interested in learning about the world around them and are able to develop themselves through their natural curiosity. 

 

 Montessori environments encompass the following approach:

 

  • Mixed age groups which not only offer a wide range of activities to spark children’s interest but also enable children to learn from others and learn by helping others.

  • Freedom for children to work at their own pace, without interruption, choosing from a range of activities that are developmentally challenging and appropriate.

  • Exploration is encouraged so that children find things out for themselves, make mistakes and correct them independently.

  • Respect for each child as an individual personality with unique talents.

  • Respect for others, the community, and the environment.
