Overview

Overview

Montessori Children's Center says

Montessori Children's Center provides an environment structured for independent growth and advancement, while at the same time fostering community. Pre-school aged children for instance share mixed age group classrooms, and in this environment equipped with specially designed floor plans and unique Montessori materials, the children move freely, with the older ones learning from and helping the younger ones- and vice versa. Work materials or lessons are distributed throughout the classroom ,and students are free to select whichever one they are interested in, provided they have been taught how to use it appropriately. These lessons are specially designed to foster and improve the development of certain skills- for instance practical life, sensorial, math, science, language etc. The Montessori philosophy fundamentally differs from typical schools and teaching methods, which tend to treat students as empty vessels to be filled with knowledge. In the Montessori method, students are treated as equals, and they are respected as individuals with their own unique thoughts, ideas, perspectives, and talents. The Montessori philosophy places paramount emphasis on educating students holistically. This in that, there is as much instructional emphasis on students developing skills of socialization, common sense, practicality and individuality, as there is on students developing intellectually and academically. The Montessori philosophy not only recognizes, but embraces, the fact that each child creates themselves according to their own blue print- no two children are identical, and no two children grow at the exact same pace.
