WHAT IS MONTESSORI?
Montessori is a child-centred method of education developed by Dr. Maria Montessori. Using scientific methods of observation, Dr. Montessori forged a theory that children learn best when given autonomy and independence. This theory of child development is now being borne out by emerging research on brain development.
Dr. Montessori succeeded in creating a method of education in which children learn from working with specialized educational materials designed specifically for Montessori classrooms- these learning materials develop the child’s cognitive capabilities through direct experience (seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, tasting and movement) rather than by direct instruction. Montessori education recognizes that children learn in different ways and are free to pursue their interests and learn at their own pace. Children are encouraged to think critically, to be curious, to ask questions, to probe deeply and to make connections. Montessori education helps to develop children’s emerging “self-regulating” skills through daily routines, carefully designed classrooms and learning materials meticulously arranged in an aesthetically pleasing environment. Hallmarks of the Montessori method include multiage groupings and uninterrupted work cycles.
In Montessori classrooms, the schedule allows for long periods of uninterrupted “work cycles”, with few transitions, to allow for the development of concentration, focus and engagement. Multiage groupings fosters peer learning and supports the concept that learning is a social process and prepares children for the real world where people socialize and work with people of all ages.
The aim of Montessori education is to help students achieve their potential and become confident, respectful, responsible, self-directed learners with an understanding that learning is for life. Visitors are amazed by the concentration and focus of the children, and the happy hum in each classroom. Because independence and self-discipline are such integral components of the program, children can work responsibly and confidently on their own, meaning that the teachers are able to give individual attention to students.
