The Montessori Method, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952), is centered upon the belief that one should provide the most positive and harmonious development of the whole child. This ultimately prepares them for a rich lifetime of learning and experience. Maria Montessori observed the learning process within children of all creeds and backgrounds from birth to maturity. She then distilled this into what is now recognized as the internationally acclaimed Montessori Method.
The method is based on self-directed activities, enabling the children to be independent learners and collaborative members of society. Children within a Montessori classroom (Children’s House) are supported by trained teachers ( directress /or) and offered a wide range of age-appropriate, carefully designed activities both inside and outside the classroom.
The Montessori Method is a unique and highly successful method of teaching based on the development of the child’s innate love of learning. The Montessori philosophy recognizes the immense capacity of children to absorb information when given the freedom and independence to learn at their own pace. Montessori Method gives the freedom for high achievers to progress at their own pace, without being artificially held back.
Mixed-age groups (age 1 to 3, 3 to 6) enable the children to collaborate with and learn from each other as well as from the adults. Classrooms resemble workplaces, with different children working on different activities, alone or in small groups, following their interests and learning at their own pace. Children develop concentration, confidence, self-discipline and a love of learning
The children learn through hands-on work rather than by listening to an adult speaking. They work using materials that are designed to help them master skills or areas of knowledge and understanding appropriate to their stage of development. These Montessori materials have been created and refined through practical experience working with tens of thousands of children over the past 100 years.
Each child’s experience is unique to them. Personalised lessons are offered to individuals or small groups. This allows for a highly individualised interaction between the adult and each child. The adult knows intimately what each child has mastered, or where they need additional practice. The adult (called their Guide) mentors them towards ownership and responsibility for their own learning.
Children start in the Children’s House between the ages of 2.5 and above. In a Montessori Children’s House, children are uniquely supported to think for themselves and do for themselves. This is a video of the Children’s House in Hove. The mixed-aged group of children are free to direct their own learning, and learn quickly to respect the work of people around them. Young children learn to make deliberate choices from hundreds of activities in a carefully prepared environment. The children become experts in guiding their own learning and discovering the world. Children of this nursery or pre-school age have an innate drive to find out about their world, their time and place, to make sense of it and make it theirs. Global Montessori House offers children the keys to the world, preparing them to find and take their place in it.
