Montessori’s approach is based on the simple concept of tailoring education to match children’s natural tendencies instead of imposing arbitrary rules from the adult world. Montessori observed that children are extraordinarily curious and experiential, and she sought to respect these attributes instead of condemning them.
Montessori realized that children learn best through discovery, personal intentionality, and experimentation. These observations led her to develop materials that concretely illustrated abstract principles of mathematics, language, and science. Her interactive materials were the first ever developed for children and contained a built-in control of error to allow the child to self-correct rather than remain dependent on the adult.
The Pre-Primary day includes independent and small group activities that develop gross and fine motor skills, cognitive, social and language skills. Art, music and free play round out their busy day. Since children in this age group love to be “on the go” ample opportunity is provided to explore the outdoor environment, engage in potdoor activities or just run in the sun for a part of every day.
