Why Montessori?

The Montessori method of education has been proven successful for 100 years and has become a worldwide phenomenon.

This methodology has been put into practice with great success in over 45 countries around the world, from China to South Africa.

Today, there is a demand worldwide for Montessori educators.

Montessori differs from traditional academic teaching methods because it focuses on learning through hands-on experiences based on a child’s interest rather than memorisation and repetition.

Through Montessori education, children will matriculate easily into lifelong learners who seek out new experiences in order to learn more about themselves and the world around them.

How does this happen?

Montessori children are encouraged to learn to self-regulate and take personal responsibility for their learning.

Each child is seen as a unique individual, who learns in different ways and at different paces. Children are free to move at their own speed, guided by the teacher and an individualized learning plan.

Montessori classrooms are designed with the needs of the developing child in mind. Materials and activities are selected based on scientific research into how young children learn. This helps children learn independence, orderliness, concentration and self-discipline at an early age so that they are better prepared for success in later life.
