In the Montessori prepared environment, a child experiences a joy of learning and freedom to explore. It is a child centred environment that promotes independence and responsibility. Hands on activities with the classic Montessori material develops skills and an understanding as an individual. Uninterrupted blocks of work time and mixed age group environments are core to this century old way of learning.
Ideology and Philosophy
Montessori itself is an education philosophy based on the basic principle of ‘Follow the Child’. It emphasises active learning, independence and cooperation with each child’s unique pace of development.
