younger children learn how to behave and work purpousefully from older children
We do not set children up for failure, but we support their needs and interest towards outstanding achievements
We do not teach: we inspire, guide, direct learning.
Montessori classroom benefits from a carefully prepared environment, which must be clean, neat and ordered; we use child's furniture and age appropriate activities to support children's learning.
Children are not made for sitting stil but they love to interact with the world around them. We role model how to politely interact with each others and the environment (the classroom).
Child-led learning: children are part of their learning too and we involve them in every step of learning.
We inspire children to become responsible adults, through Grace and Courtesy exercises and British Values rules.
AGAINST TECHNOLOGY? NOT AT ALL! THIS IS A FALSE MYTH
(When Maria Montessori started her philosophy there was no much technology available. This does not mean she was against it!)
AGAINST CREATIVITY? NOT AT ALL!! ANOTHER FALSE MYTH
(The Montessori approach is focused on reality-based pretend play; what is discouraged is fantasy play - e.g. monsters and such! - not imagination! )
