Montessori is a method of education that is based on self-directed activity, hands on learning and collaborative play. In Montessori classrooms children make creative choices in their learning, while the classroom and the 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.
Every material in a Montessori environment supports an aspect of child development, creating a match between the child’s natural interests and the available activities. Children can learn through their own experience and at their own pace. They can respond at any moment to the natural curiosities that exist in all humans and build a solid foundation for life-long learning.
