Montessori Method

Maria Montessori (1870-1952) was an Italian physician, educator, and pedagogue who developed the Montessori method of education, a pedagogical approach that focuses on hands-on learning, freedom for the student to explore his or her own pace of learning, and careful observation by the teacher.

The Montessori method is based on the idea that children have an innate capacity to learn and that they can learn effectively if given the right environment and tools. Montessori believed that education should be a sensory experience and that children should be able to learn through exploration and experimentation.

The Montessori method focuses on educating the whole child, including physical, social, emotional and cognitive development. Children work in a prepared environment that includes specific educational materials designed to encourage self-exploration and independent learning.

The Montessori method is divided into several stages, including:

Children’s House (3-6 years): this stage focuses on the development of social and emotional skills, as well as the acquisition of basic skills in areas such as language, mathematics and culture.
Primary (6-12 years): during this stage, children continue to develop academic and social skills, and are encouraged to explore their interests and work together on collaborative projects.
Secondary (12-18 years): this stage focuses on preparation for adult life, including the development of practical skills and the exploration of interests and career options.
The Montessori method also relies on the teacher’s role as observer and guide. Montessori teachers are not the transmitters of knowledge, but act as facilitators of learning, providing support and direction to children as they explore the world.

In short, the Montessori method is a pedagogical approach that focuses on hands-on learning, freedom for the student to explore his or her own pace of learning, and careful observation by the teacher. The method is based on the idea that children have an innate ability to learn and that they can learn effectively if given the right environment and tools. The Montessori method is divided into several stages and focuses on educating the whole child, including physical, social, emotional and cognitive development.
