CHILD CENTERED APPROACH
Dr. Maria Montessori developed an educational approach known as the Montessori method, which prioritizes the child's development and is centered around their needs.
DEVELOPMENT OF THE WHOLE CHILD
The Montessori philosophy perceives children as naturally curious and motivated learners who can thrive in a carefully crafted, immersive learning environment. This child-centered approach prioritizes holistic growth and fosters the development of physical, social, emotional, and cognitive skills. An immersive Chinese English learning environment can also be incorporated into this approach to provide a supportive and stimulating language learning experience.
According to Maria Montessori, the ultimate goals in life are to discover one's purpose, find fulfilling work, and cultivate inner peace and love. Montessori schools worldwide embrace her philosophy of respecting children as unique individuals and prioritizing their social and emotional growth.
The Montessori approach recognizes that children have an innate desire to learn and encourages collaboration through multi-age groupings. Students are free to choose their own activities and work independently or in groups. Hands-on materials and real-life lessons promote authentic learning, while uninterrupted work time allows for deep concentration.
Montessori teachers create a carefully prepared environment that fosters curiosity, independence, and freedom within limits. Students navigate this environment and guide their own learning with support and guidance from their teachers.
An immersive Chinese-English learning environment can also be incorporated into the Montessori approach to provide a unique and engaging language learning experience. With dedicated and skilled staff, Montessori classrooms promote kindness, compassion, mutual respect, and peace as integral values.
By encouraging students to develop the independence and skills necessary to be self-sufficient in their classrooms, we prepare them to venture into the biggest classroom of all. They leave with a true love of learning, standing on an academic and social foundation that will support them throughout their lives.
A MONTESSORI EDUCATION
The Montessori philosophy emphasizes that children are naturally curious and eager to learn. Maria Montessori believed in providing a supportive and stimulating environment to facilitate a child's cognitive, emotional, social, language, and physical development. This approach values the development of the whole child and emphasizes finding meaningful and fulfilling work, inner peace, and the ability to love as the most important life goals.
Montessori classrooms are designed to foster collaboration and hands-on exploration, with multi-age groupings and real-life lessons. Children are given uninterrupted blocks of work time and freedom to choose their own activities, which helps them develop independence and self-sufficiency.
Montessori teachers carefully prepare the environment to encourage curiosity, independence, and freedom within limits, and guide children as needed. Through practicing a range of academic and practical life skills, children develop a love of learning and leave with a strong academic and social foundation to support them throughout their lives.
The Montessori approach is based on a deep respect for children as unique individuals and a profound concern for their social and emotional development, which is reflected in daily practice through the honoring of kindness, compassion, mutual respect, and peace.
