Why Choose Montessori?
The Montessori approach is holistic and aims to develop the whole child. Fundamental to the approach is the belief that a child's early years from birth to six are the period when they have the greatest capacity to learn.
All children by nature are generally inquisitive and curious, in the Montessori environment, children have the freedom (within limits) to investigate the world around them and choose their own activities. With this freedom of choice, children will become active and enthusiastic learners and this will aid them to develop self-discipline.
Montessori children learn how to be self-motivated and independent, with a sense of respect for themselves, others and their environment. The child's self esteem is central to Montessori education; a positive self-concept is the foundation for learning success.
The Montessori environment is child-centred; it is designed to meet the child's need for self-construction. The environment is responsive to the continually changing needs of the growing child.
