The Montessori approach simply creates an environment prepared to bring out the best naturally within every child. It improves your child’s creative and critical thinking, math and literary skills and social and emotional behaviour. Our Montessori school in Ancaster aims to create a happy and nurturing environment for your children, conducive to developing their social, intellectual, academic, physical and artistic skills.

 

What Is Montessori Education?

Montessori Education is an innovative way of education developed by the ideas of Dr. Maria Montessori and based on scientific discoveries. It seeks to offer children an enriching environment where they develop the fundamentals of learning and exploring and grow toward reaching their greatest potential. What sets Montessori education apart is that it is based on the science of learning and development while valuing each child's uniqueness. It doesn't force cookie-cutter ideas on every child but rather adapts to their individual needs allowing them to joyfully learn and grow at their own pace. 

Materials

After studying the kinds of activities children gravitate to and benefit from, Dr. Montessori developed a set of materials. These materials include multi-sensory, sequential and self-correcting activities for children that foster learning. The enthusiasm for learning and confidence developed through working with these self-correcting Montessori materials is outstanding. 

 

Teachers

Teachers in a Montessori educational environment play several roles. They're architects of the environment mandated by the program, role models, and observe the children's behaviour. All our Montessori teachers and early childhood educators must be certified and specialized in teaching particular age groups.

 

Groups

Typically, Montessori schools like ours divide children into a mixture of age groups, toddlers ranging from ages 1.5-3 and Casa ranging in ages 3-5. Our certified teachers closely monitor each child's progress and learning, keeping detailed records of their observations. 

 

Our Approach

Dr. Montessori discovered how to create this environment through detailed scientific observations of many children over many years. Every day in authentic Montessori classrooms throughout the world, students learn:

  • Motivation
  • Harmony and compassion
  • Responsibility and self-discipline
  • Confidence
  • Social interaction
