Montessori Prepared Environmen
This setting allows children to interact freely, encouraging them to learn and develop compassion, understanding, and respect for others. They become more socially conscious, and at the right moments, they play in groups. This social connection is emphasized in multi-age school settings and is maintained throughout the environment. Because of the impact of their older classmates, our multi-age classes allow older children to develop leadership traits while younger children progress at a quicker rate.
Environment of Thought
A prepared environment not only shapes a child's character, but it also helps them develop academically and mentally. The Montessori curriculum (practical life, sensorial, language, mathematics, and cultural topics) provides the structure that encourages children to become self-directed, responsible, and self-motivated learners.
The youngster is free to transition from one work cycle to the next in a productive manner. Our Montessori certified teachers provide the environment appropriately the first time, allowing the child to roam freely and explore, following their natural impulses and working with the materials they pick. If the child's movement is disrupting the class or other children, classroom management tactics are used to redirect the child's conduct.
Order and Structure
Between the ages of one and three years, Maria Montessori argued, there is a sensitive phase for order. The infant is absorbing and building an internal world based on external environments throughout this period. As a result, it's critical to provide an atmosphere that helps the youngster develop a feeling of structure, order, and self-control. In the classroom, a prepared atmosphere gives structure and order, which appropriately mirrors the universe's sense of structure and order. This framework allows children to work according to their age and aptitude, resulting in increased focus and a learning environment.
A well-kept environment is one that is attractive, uncluttered, and well-kept. Colorful and appealing materials express calm and tranquility in the atmosphere. Every material has a place and function in creating a pleasing environment. All of these characteristics contribute to a child's mental creativity and organization.
Reality and Nature
Children utilize child-size genuine things that are appropriate for their age and fit their hands. This promotes appropriate usage, makes labor more manageable, and allows work to be completed without aggravation. Our classroom furniture is ideal for their height, so the child doesn't have to rely on the adult for freedom and movement.
Montessori instructors serve as a living link between the environment and a child's needs. They operate as a translator for the kid by monitoring, anticipating, and assisting the youngster in working through work cycles. This structure aids the child's independence and development as an abstract thinker. A Montessori teacher is responsible for preserving the ambiance and order of the prepared environment, as well as preparing and communicating the environment to the child.
