What is the Montessori method?

This renowned world-wide specialist approach designed by Dr Maria Montessori in the 1930's encourages each child to learn through gently guided self-teaching experiences, enhancing their natural curiosity and awareness of the world around them. Children progress through structured and spontaneous activities with caring guidance from both adults and children.

This philosophy and specialist materials ensure that each child learns at their own natural pace according to their particular learning strengths, gaining self-esteem, independence and confidence in their own ability. The materials are didactic and multi-sensorial, side-stepping many difficulties children may have in learning through traditional methods, making learning fun.
