The Montessori method of teaching is renowned for helping children develop their natural interests and activities, instead of just relying on formal teaching methods.
A Montessori classroom should be filled with inspiring toys that encourage a child’s creativity and stimulate their senses. It should reflect what Maria Montessori herself wrote, ‘The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child’s own natural desire to learn.’
Many studies have shown this type of teaching is more effective and enables children to learn many key skills, including self-discipline. In 2017 a review found there was broad consensus of its efficacy.
It helps a child develop those essential skills already within them, enabling them to master the creative learning process all through his life. Montessori teaching methods centre around several elements of human psychology, including communication, abstraction, exploration and manipulation of the environment.
Play reflects the different developmental stages of a child and the right toys make all the difference. Independent play is an important part of the Montessori teaching method. A well-prepared learning environment is key for encouraging children to develop their unique skills.
