Montessori is a method of education that is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play. In our classrooms children make creative choices in their learning, while the classroom and the teacher offer age-appropriate activities to guide the process. Children work in groups and individually to discover and explore knowledge of the world and to develop their maximum potential.
Montessori classrooms are beautifully crafted environments designed to meet the needs of children in a specific age group. Our classroom led to a deeper understanding of language, arithmetic, science, music, social interactions and much more.
Every material in our classroom supports an aspect of child development, creating a match between the child’s natural interests and the available activities. Children can learn through their own experience and at their own pace. They can respond at any moment to the natural curiosities that exist in all humans and build a solid foundation for lifelong learning.
We follow Dr. Maria Montessori Method. The Montessori Method has been used in educating children over 80 years. It emphasises on freedom, independence, within limits and respect for a child’s natural physiological advancements is society.
There is nothing quite like the authentic Montessori Method for early childhood education. This unique approach enables children to discover their true potential and develop an organized, engaged, and focused mind. The Montessori experience prepares them to be curious, lifelong learners, as well as good citizens, future innovators, and able leaders.
