Montessori is a method of education that is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play.

Maria Montessori was born on 31 August 1870 in the town of Chiaravalle, Italy, she was an Italian physician, educator, and innovator, acclaimed for her educational method that builds on the way children learn naturally.

In Montessori classrooms children make creative choices in their learning, while the classroom and the highly trained teacher offer age-appropriate activities to guide the process. Children work in groups and individually to discover and explore knowledge of the world and to develop their maximum potential.

Montessori classrooms are beautifully crafted environments designed to meet the needs of children in a specific age range. Dr. Maria Montessori discovered that experiential learning in this type of classroom led to a deeper understanding of language, mathematics, science, music, social interactions and much more. Most Montessori classrooms are secular in nature, although the Montessori educational method can be integrated successfully into a faith-based program.

Montessori covers 5 primary areas of learning

1- Practical life

Practical Life assists children in developing social skills, personal independence and eases their transition into education.

2- Mathematics

Children use concrete materials to learn number symbols and quantities. As the child progresses, the concepts and difficulty increases allowing for variation based on each child’s ability.

3-Sensorial Development

Sensorial Development helps children to become more perceptive. We focus on ten senses: visual, auditory, olfactory, gustatory, tactile, kinaesthetic, stereo-gnostic, and thermic.

4-Culture & Science

By interacting freely with materials, children build a global perspective, respect and understanding of other cultures. Some areas include history, geography, science, health and music.

5-Language Arts

The Language Arts materials enrich vocabulary and build foundations for the development of reading and writing. Language development is stimulated in all the areas of the classroom.
