Montessori Method

Article by Ms. Eden

“Character formation cannot be taught, it comes from experience and not from explanation.”

Maria Montessori believed that children learn better and more naturally through direct experience with the environment, with self teaching materials and exercises, encourage children to engage in spontaneous productive activity, while the teachers observes their individual capacities and styles.

The approach does not force children to do any exercise they do not like or are not ready for, and practice independence by allowing the learners to choose their own work, work on their own and learn at their own pace.

Moreover, Montessori approach aims for holistic growth and development not only mentally and spiritually and to prepare children for life.
