General concepts and Introduction to the Montessori Method of teaching

The method was developed by Dr Maria Montessori (1870-1952). Dr Montessori described the child’s mind between the time of birth and six years of age as an absorbent mind. Children’s’ mind absorbs a lot of things during this phase of life. Thus it is very much effective if they are thought in a way which motivates them to learn and understand. And the most motivating factor for children is fun and love. Montessori Method focuses on the development of a child as a whole. Montessori Method of teaching is a scientific and proved method of teaching kids. The Montessori theory is based upon the fact that children work at their optimum level when given the freedom and an environment of fun.

The classes are like playground with all furniture and equipment placed in reach of every child. These help children to develop the sense of achievement. Every small detail is thought into scientific manner to boost the learning and capturing capacity of children. Montessori classes are conducted in a productive, busy and joyful learning environment. Children are given freedom to do the activities they are interested in.
