About Montessori

The Montessori Method is the result of the experiences and discoveries of
Dr. Maria Montessori (1870–1952). Maria Montessori observed that a child has an “absorbent mind,” especially between the ages of three and six. She believed children should stay within a single classroom for three years to fully develop their conscious awareness of their whole selves. Learner outcomes of authentic Montessori programs include: independence, confidence & competence, autonomy, intrinsic motivation, social responsibility, academic preparation, spiritual awareness/cosmic education and global citizenship.

The Montessori classroom uses concrete materials that are self-correcting and allow children to learn at their own pace. These materials help the child to see, touch, feel and freely explore their environments without the teacher’s intervention. The Montessori teacher provides individual instruction within set guidelines. The children learn self-respect, respect for others and respect for their environment. Montessori methods and materials promote inner discipline and self-motivation.

The main focus of a Montessori teacher is to guide each child by providing a well-prepared environment. This environment fosters the creativity and the curiosity of the child and also bolsters the child’s self-esteem. The child is able to learn independently and with the help of his peers and teacher. Children receiving Montessori instruction excel academically and socially and gain the confidence they need to reach their fullest potential.

Montessori Vs Traditional Teaching

The goal of both Montessori and traditional schools are the same: to provide learning experiences for the child. The biggest differences lie in the kinds of learning experiences each school provides and the methods they use to accomplish this goal. There is a saying that goes “What gets measured gets managed”. Are traditional schools measuring what is important? Montessori sees the basics (reading, writing and arithmetic) as the very least we can teach our children. Montessori classrooms create opportunities for meaningful work from engaged students who are genuinely enthusiastic about their activities. They not only learn the basics, but learn HOW to learn, how to treat others, how to lead, and how to be part of a team. They learn independence, self-confidence and compassion, as well as high academic achievement.
