The basis of Montessori philosophy of education is based on the principle that children have what Dr. Montessori called an absorbent mind. They are capable of effortlessly acquiring knowledge from their surroundings. We believe that learning should take place in a multi-age classroom where children are at various stages of development and therefore can benefit from each other.
The children are naturally interested in their environment and have an internal desire not only to learn about it but also to achieve competence in it. Dr. Montessori developed the idea of a prepared environment where the teacher prepares the classroom to facilitate maximum independent learning and exploration by the children. This environment enables the children to develop concentration, perseverance; reasoning, cooperation, and confidence that will help them become competent learners.
The children are free to move about the classroom, choosing learning materials that are of interest to them. The teacher introduces new work, both individually and in groups, and changes the environment continually to meet the needs of the growing children. The Montessori philosophy introduces children to the joy of learning at an early age and provides a framework in which intellectual and social development go hand-in-hand.
