In the early 1900’s, an Italian educator and physician named Dr. Maria Montessori developed a unique method of education—Montessori Method. It is based on an independent style of learning. The Montessori Method is a sensory based education method in which the adults guide the child and the child learns through specially designed materials.
Montessori education offers a self-directed individual learning approach. In other words, the child is free to roam about the environment and choose materials of interest to him or her. The materials are designed to keep the child challenged at many different levels.
By using this “self-directed” individual learning approach, Montessori students are able to teach themselves through critical interaction in a prepared environment. The Montessori materials connect tasks that gradually require higher levels of cognitive thought. The Montessori Method nurtures a task-oriented child who is intrinsically motivated to master these challenging tasks.
The materials themselves are designed with the child’s senses in mind. We are connected to our surrounding environment by our senses. These senses go far beyond what we normally think of as our senses or what we use them on a daily basis. Montessori materials designed around our senses of sight, sound, smell, and touch. In a typical Montessori classroom, the guides inspire the children through one-on-one and also in small groups. When the children are not involved in lessons, they work at their own pace on activities they have chosen and have been presented to. A typical Montessori classroom is buzzing with steady activity. You may see some children working as teams, some children working independently and older children helping the younger children while the Guide (Teacher) presents to small groups in a conference or observes and records the flow of work in the room.
In short, the Montessori education provides the child with a solid foundation of learning that will carry them well into the future. Montessori education offers a lifelong learning experience that will provide a strong foundation. An education that will set the child on a fascinating journey.
