Time Tested Preschool Education

When it comes to preschools, not all are created equal. In order to help children develop a genuine love of learning as well as the skills necessary to find answers to problems and questions, Montessori schools take a child-centered approach to education. Dr. Montessori’s Method has been used in many parts of the world to successfully teach young children for more than 100 years.

The fundamental Montessori education model is based on two human development principles: that children must interact with their environments to engage in psychological self-construction and that young children have an innate, individual path to psychological development. Based on these two principles, Montessori believed that children must be given freedom to act spontaneously and make their own choices within a prepared environment for optimal development.

More Details About Montessori

  • Normalization

    Montessori observed that young children between three and six years old were able to obtain a state of “normalization” by learning social sentiments, spontaneous discipline, and concentration. To help children obtain optimal normalization, the Montessori preschool provides children with learning opportunities and activities that serve each child’s individual learning style and developmental needs.

  • Individualized Education

    While most preschools provide standardized education that is administered in the same style and at the same rate for all students, the Montessori Method takes a more personalized approach. Children develop and learn at different rates and in different ways, and Montessori education recognizes this principle. Students are free to advance through curriculum when ready, and they are never rushed or pressured to learn at the same pace as other children.

  • Self-Directed Learning

    It is essential to help children learn to love and value education from a young age. Not all preschools are able to achieve this goal. In an environment that fosters enthusiasm, critical thinking and questions, children who attend Montessori schools often emerge as confident, capable, and self-directed learners for life. They are also equipped with the critical thinking skills they will need to achieve their educational goals throughout life.
