Our aim is to work together to provide all students with a caringenvironment in which learning, cooperation, self-esteem and success are valuedand encouraged to attain their maximum potential, which is why we have chosento embrace the Montessori learning method.
What is the Montessori method?
The Montessori method was developed by Dr. Maria Montessori. The Montessoriapproach is there to develop every aspect of the child. Montessori believedthat the child’s early years from birth to six is the time period when theyhave the highest capacity to learn.
We are committed to helping students acquire and use knowledge, communicateeffectively, and become responsible contributing individuals in their communityand the diverse world.
Montessori classrooms are called the prepared environment because they areprepared for the children, so children can be as independent as possible in aMontessori classroom.
Montessori believed children learn best by doing and thus Montessoriactivities are created for children to be able to work through play. Younglearners who are happy and self-motivated will form good characters ofthemselves as successful adults.
The Montessori classroom therefore allows children to foster in achallenging and comfortable environment which has been specially prepared tothe meet the needs of a child.
Montessori teachers believe that outstanding academic standards are just onepart of a brilliant educational program. However, the exposure to a variety oftopics, concepts and materials along with effectively working with each child’sindividual strengths, interests and learning styles all contribute to aninspirational, stimulating, effective and successful program that holds thechild’s interest and develops their love for learning.
