Why Montessori?

"Help me to do it myself"
    • Opportunity to Explore Interesting Activities

      Children have the opportunity to explore activities that interests them and satisfies any ‘sensitive period’ they are experiencing at that time. They will learn more with no pressure from an adult.

    • Children Develop Naturally at Their Own Pace

      The Teacher, or Directress, acts merely as a guide allowing children to develop naturally at their own pace. They become independent in the learning process.

    • Builds Self-Discipline

      Montessori builds self-discipline. In order for it to become a lifelong skill the child’s ability to remain on task must come from within, not from outside reproach.

    • Montessori Focuses on Children's Ability to Learn

      Montessori emphasizes cognitive and social development rather than rote learning. The wonder of learning in our world is changing so quickly that memorization is of little use. Montessori focuses on children’s ability to learn by teaching them how to learn.

    • Building Close Relationships and Self-Confidence

      Children learn by osmosis by working together, giving them the opportunity to be taught by peers as well as to take on the role of teacher. They build close relationships and self-confidence. Scientific studies confirm that all children in a multi-age classroom learn more effectively than in a traditional single age room.

    • Children Work With and Help Each Other

      The child is encouraged to teach, work with and help others on a regular basis. In life the most successful people are usually those who work well with others. Traditional classrooms often discourage cooperation and call it ‘cheating’.

      The child is not interrupted during a learning moment, but allowed enough time to finish the task at hand to his/her own satisfaction.

    • The Joy of Knowledge

      Rewards and grades produce competition and discourage cooperation. A child motivated by the joy of knowledge excels far beyond the punishment/reward system.

    • Hands On Learning

      Montessori uses multi-sensory, self-correcting activities. The knowledge from this ‘hands on’ learning will stay with the child for a lifetime

    • Special Bond of Respect and Good Will

      The Directresses and the child form a special bond of respect and good will as the learning is accomplished through cooperation and guidance, not discipline and apprehension.

    • Atmosphere of Caring, Camaraderie and Respect

      Grace, courtesy and trust are practiced in the Montessori classroom between children and adults alike creating an atmosphere of caring, camaraderie and respect.
