Maria Montessori saw that children learn best by doing and that happy self-motivated learners form positive images of themselves as confident, successful people. She created specially designed resources to foster independence and a love for learning from an early age.
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 five are the period when they have the greatest capacity to learn.
The Montessori classroom is a home away from home a happy place full of friends where you can be yourself.
The layout of the Montessori classroom encourages exploration, communication and the development of relationships on all levels. Everything reflects a dedication to quality, beauty and to the children’s abilities to do things for themselves.
Montessori saw that careful preparation of the environment is an essential ingredient for the successful development of children.
