Montessori Learning Centre

  • At Montessori Learning Centre, The Montessori Method is a wonderful approach to learning developed by Dr. Maria Montessori.
  • She was the first female physician in Italy and began working with children during the early 1900's.
  • Dr. Montessori discovered that by giving children tools that were real, but child sized, enabled them to learn at a greater pace.
  • She discovered that the young child had a much bigger capacity for learning than ever thought before.
  • She found that the minds of children as young as 2 and 3 were like sponges, absorbing everything that she could offer them.
  • At this time, the thought that the young child could learn so much was quite revolutionary.
  • The method became popular in the United States in the late 1950's and has been validated by much of what we have learned during the twentieth century about children.
  • Children in this environment rapidly become explorers and discoverers. They move freely about the classroom, choosing activities to do alone or with others.
  • There is a wide variety of practical life activities which help the child develop coordination, concentration, a sense of order, and independence.
  • Montessori believed that children could learn from anything that you got into their hands.
  • Sensorial activities encourage the child to explore using all the senses.
  • Activities in the areas of math, science, geography, language development and reading promote the conceptual development of the child and form a firm foundation for future learning.
  • The daily program also includes movement activities, art, music, story time and outdoor play.
  • Our teachers, besides being enthusiastic educators, are skilled observers of children.
  • Their goal is to make the classroom environment a warm, welcoming place with a rich diversity of materials and experiences available at all times.
  • The teacher is always close by, helping one child select an activity, going with another to view his completed work, encouraging two children in their cooperative effort.
  • The children are busy and happy. Their natural curiosity leads them to explore, and the carefully prepared activities along with the guidance of the teacher insure success and self-satisfaction.
