With Montessori education, learning and movement are inseparable. Children develop at different rates, and they learn best when they are actively involved. The Montessori approach also values the human spirit and the development of the whole child- physical, social, emotional and cognitive. The classroom is prepared by the teacher to encourage independence, freedom within limits and a sense of order. There is great respect for each child, and instruction is organized around individual developmental needs, interests and learning styles.
Montessori materials are beautifully designed. They appeal to the senses and guide the child from concrete to abstract concepts and enhance active engagement.
