What it does for the child
In the Montessori prepared environment, the children are the center of education, with a program adapted to their interests and needs. As a result, children concentrate with enthusiasm and achieve a real and profound understanding of task- oriented learning. This intellectual progress is accompanied by emotional growth. The child develops independence, self-confidence, self-discipline and learns skills needed for higher education.
The Montessori teacher gives both group and individual presentations of the specialized educational materials. The self-correcting materials help the children develop motor and sensory skills, lengthening concentration span, and discovering problem-solving techniques.
The Montessori method offers individual attention to the development of the whole child. The child is able to develop independence, self-confidence, self-discipline and many skills for further education and life.
"The environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences.”
