Dr. Montessori’s teaching method is designed to harness their innate potential, and allow children to take charge of their education in a variety of areas.
Three key areas are:
At the Montessori Children’s House, older children develop leadership skills by assisting their younger classmates. The younger children model the successful behavior of the older child, and will pass on their knowledge to future classmates. All students benefit enormously by learning new material and how to work with people of different ages.
Montessori children learn skills that go beyond academic growth and lay the foundation for practical work. While children delight in the activities of polishing, washing, tying shoes, or preparing foods, they develop their hand-eye coordination and become independent in selfcare.
The Montessori Children’s House uses sensorial materials to help children distinguish the differences of size, weight, texture, sound, color, and shape. These materials allow them to develop their senses through personal discovery. On such material is the famous Montessori sandpaper letters, which children trace with their fingers to feel the “shape” of each letter.
