“The greatest sign of success for a teacher... is to be able to say, 'The children are now working as if I did not exist.'”
- Maria Montessori
The Montessori Method offers a diverse array of learning tools that’ll give your children the chance to master different skills through observation, manipulation, and repetition.
These tools will encourage students to learn on their own, at their own pace, focusing on each task as they see fit.. Within this autonomy-encouraging atmosphere, the teacher is merely a presenter of the material and an occasional guide on your child’s educational journey.
The level of difficulty increases after each set of materials, and your child grows more confident after the completion of each task. This allows them to evolve within an ordered progression of learning, in which they will never advance to the next step without completely mastering the previous one.
What Are Montessori Materials?
The Montessori Materials will serve as an approach to different subjects and styles of exercise, although all exercises will require children to actually get their hands on the material, interacting with it on some level.
Numbers and Counters
A traditional activity in any Montessori math curriculum, numbers and counters help to improve your children’s understanding of numbers by assimilating concepts such as sequences and quantities.
A puzzle map is one of our ways to introduce students to simple geography concepts. By exploring the activity, they’ll learn basic postulations such as the name of continents, countries, oceans and how they relate to each other.
By learning how to clean items by themselves, your child will develop motor skills, concentration, and independence. This activity is also a clear example of how Montessori can make a difference in your child’s environment outside of the classroom, consciously asserting the importance of an organized environment and preserving personal hygiene.
Exploring the moveable alphabet is essential to the early stages of the literacy process. With it, your child will learn how to identify letters, separate consonants from vowels, form words, and ultimately improve their reading and writing skills.
Where Next? Prepared Environment
The main purpose of our classrooms’ physical and behavioral structure is to encourage children to showcase their skills to the best of their ability. We believe that when your child is placed in our classrooms, they will eventually see learning as challenging, yet rewarding.
