All programs follow the Montessori model of learning
Respect for the child is the cornerstone of the Montessori philosophy. Allowing children to do things independently and to learn for themselves ensures that they will develop confidence and a love for learning that will blossom as they grow.
The Prepared Environment is a very important part of the Montessori classroom. It is a beautiful and orderly environment designed with children in mind. In this environment, children have the freedom and the safety to choose which encourages confidence and independence as they learn.
The Ability To Learn
The Absorbent Mind is the aspect of Montessori that acknowledges that children can’t help but learn. By absorbing the world around them, children learn simply by living. In the Montessori classroom, there is never a shortage of opportunities for children to explore and learn.
The Teacher's Role
In a Montessori classroom, the teacher serves as a guide. They are ready and available to help when necessary, but they are not an obstacle between the child and their experience. It is the teacher’s role to provide the ideal environment, model respect, and cue in to each child’s individual needs all while encouraging the children to educate themselves.
