One hundred years ago, Dr Maria Montessori, an inspired pediatrician, engineer and educationalist, created a ground breaking method of teaching based on her own extensive observations of the way children learn using self guided exploration of their environment. Her work became respected by the leading child-psychologists of the age, and today helps us to understand the complexities of child development.
The Montessori approach stimulates children’s curiosity and encourages independence by providing a wide range of activities and specially designed learning materials which children can use at their own pace.
This builds confidence, self-discipline, a sense of self-worth and fulfillment that encourages constructive social behaviour.
Montessori education allows children to explore their growing and changing interests, harnesses their natural creativity and exposes them to core academic subjects of language and mathematics from a very early age.
In today’s crowded, noisy and fast paced world, it is more important than ever that children acquire and retain the motivation to develop to their full potential.
Our world might have changed a lot over the last hundred years, but a child’s need for brain development has not and the Montessori method remains as relevant, dynamic and powerful as it always has been.
