The Montessori method is based on a child’s developmental needs. It proposes that children are to be respected as different from adults and as individuals that are different from each other.
“Our goal is not so much the imparting of knowledge as the unveiling and developing of spiritual energy.”
Montessori philosophy recognizes that children have a natural desire that inspires them to reach their potential. Their minds are like fertile fields. Their inherent love of learning is stimulated when they are given opportunities to engage in meaningful activities with the proper balance of autonomy and guidance from specially trained teachers.
