Montessori Method is based on self-discipline, self-governance and free movement of children, not confining to the four walls of a classroom. Scientific observation has established that education is not what the teacher gives and carried out by human individual, or is acquired by listening to words but by experience upon the environment, which make him fit to live with values comfortably in a Society.Children are the supreme important asset and most loving wealth of any nation. The pretty and precious childhood, especially the early years are very significant for the development of concept and other perpetual and cognitive skills in children. Developing habits, attitudes and skills of children in their formative years would go a long way in moulding a society rich in human resources.The child is the centre of education and the teacher is a guide and observer in the processes of learning. Environments are created in which the child's personality can be made to bloom and grow to its fullest potential.The Montessori Method of education practiced in our school is perhaps, the most widely accepted system of child education for age groups of 0 to 10 years. This system was introduced by Dr.Maria Montessori of Italy, a well known Child Psychologist and educationalist, after years and years of research According to her, the infancy of mankind, the child, is the connecting link between generations that have gone and that have to come. The Montessori Method is designed so that the impetus of the holistic development of the child comes from the child himself.
The exercises of Practical Life are the foundation of a Montessori environment. It provides an opportunity for purposeful work which allows your child to develop control and co-ordination of movement, awareness of his environment, good work habit, responsibility, concentration, attention, independence, order and positive self image which can be attained by spontaneous and purposeful work. From these exercises the child learns to make intelligent choices, to become physically and then mentally independent and responsible. Child learns to concentrate, to control muscles, to move and act with care, to focus, to analyze logical steps and complete a cycle of activity. This lays the ground work for mental and physical work in all other areas of work, not just in early childhood, but throughout life.
Children learn through their five senses .The primary purpose of sensorial exercise is to further refine his/her sense of touch, taste, smell, sight and hearing. The materials used in the sensorial exercise are quite unlike anything else that the child has ever encountered in the way of play things.
