Why Montessori

Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world - DR. MARIA MONTESSORI

A Montessori classroom is a thoughtfully designed environment to offer children opportunities to develop their own capabilities. Each classroom is filled with developmentally appropriate activities that encourage children to interact with specific learning materials, as well as to work cooperatively with others. The combination of independent, partner, small-group, and whole-group lessons and activities introduces children to different learning relationships and interpersonal dynamics—valuable skills for their interactions outside the classroom!

Frequently Asked Questions

Know More
 
Are Montessori children successful later in life?

Research studies show that Montessori children are well prepared for later life academically, socially, and emotionally. In addition to scoring well on standardized tests, Montessori children are ranked above average on such criteria as following directions, turning in work on time, listening attentively, using basic skills, showing responsibility, asking provocative questions, showing enthusiasm for learning, and adapting to new situations.

Isn’t Montessori just a preschool?

Montessori schools may be best known for their programs with young children, but the underlying educational method describes programs for students up through high school.

Do children have fun at a Montessori Environment?

Yes! Maria Montessori recognized the fundamental truth that play is a child’s work. As such, her method is designed to appeal to children as a form of fun play while simultaneously bestowing upon them important educational precepts.

Why does Montessori have multi age classrooms?

Multi age classrooms afford us the luxury of adapting the curriculum to the individual child. Each child can work at his or her own pace, while remaining in community with his or her peers. In addition, the multi age format allows all older children to be the leaders of the classroom community-even those children who may be shy or quiet.

Montessori classrooms don’t look like regular classrooms. Where are the rows of desks? Where does the teacher stand?

The different arrangement of a Montessori classroom mirrors the Montessori methods differences from traditional education. Rather than putting the teacher at the focal point of the class, with children dependent on her for information and activity, the classroom shows a literally child-centered approach. Children work at tables or on floor mats where they can spread out their materials, and the teacher circulates about the room, giving lessons or resolving issues as they arise.

If children are free to choose their own work, how do you ensure that they receive a well-rounded education?

Montessori children are free to choose within limits, and have only as much freedom as they can handle with appropriate responsibility. The classroom teacher and assistant ensure that children do not interfere with each other, and that each child is progressing at her appropriate pace in all subjects.

Are Montessori schools as academically rigorous as traditional schools?

Yes; Montessori classrooms encourage deep learning of the concepts behind academic skills rather than rote practice of abstract techniques. Since the Montessori Method acknowledges that children are hungry to learn , we take our role to facilitate this learning very seriously. Having understood child psychology, we respect every childs pace and never force the child to do anything his body and mind are not ready for. We wait, aid and set free the child to do his learning and compete with himself.

Since Montessori classrooms emphasize non-competitiveness, how are students adequately prepared for real-life competition later on?

Montessori classrooms emphasize competition with oneself: self-monitoring, self-correction, and a variety of other executive skills aimed at continuous improvement. Students typically become comfortable with their strengths and learn how to address their weaknesses. In older classes, students commonly participate in competitive activities with clear winners? (auditions for limited opera roles, the annual spelling bee, etc.) in which students give their best performances while simultaneously encouraging peers to do the same. It is a healthy competition in which all contenders are content that they did their best in an environment with clear and consistent rules.

Since most children will eventually have to go to the formal schools, wouldn’t it be better for them to go to Traditional Schools

It has been observed that children passed out of Montessori school have an excellent start as compared to students from other schools. Montessori children are self confident, independent and enthusiastic and generally adapt to all sorts of new situations. In addition to this, the curriculum also includes enriched lesson in Maths, reading, languages, science, geography and other cultural areas.The Montessori school children are way ahead of their peers studying in Traditional Schools.

Isn’t Montessori method of education expensive?

Tuition fees in Montessori preschools throughout the country is sometimes higher than other preschools because of

1. Premium Montessori Materials

2. Highly trained Staff.

3. Specially Prepared environment

4. A wide curriculum for Holistic Learning

5. Longer Work Hours to reap Maximum Benefits

It becomes a matter of what you value most. To give your child the finest possible experience in his most sensitive years is to give him a strong foundation throughout his life and probably ward off investment later to correct or remedy that, which was missed.

The child who enjoys learning and becomes self-directed at the critical preschool age will benefit through all his years of learning.
