The Montessori Ethos

Children are treated with respect and are given freedom within a carefully planned environment. Children have time to develop at their own pace, allowing the child to absorb information with hands on experiences. In the Montessori classroom, children choose from a wide range of activities and experiences, working with each one for as long as they need to.  Many of the Montessori resources are sensorial based, designed for children to explore differences in: height, weight, colour, smell, texture and taste. Maria Montessori recognised that children have a natural willingness to learn and explore, and that the best way to learn was from self-motivation.
