At the heart of the Montessori philosophy is respect for the child, which has profound implications for the way children are taught in a classroom. In a Montessori Pre-school, this translates into the understanding and support of children’s developmental stages, versatile curriculum throughout their elementary school career, and a more hands-off role for the teachers, all of which encourage children to learn at their own pace.
Montessori education is an approach to life which continues when the school day is over. To get the best results, Montessori techniques should be incorporated into your home life as well. Not only will this encourage your children to be more active and inquisitive, but it will also help them learn and become more self-confident.
