The Montessori method takes into account the different planes of development in relation to every child’s interests and abilities in a system of child-centred learning. Children reveal their strengths and weaknesses to teachers who observe them closely. This equips teachers with the information they need to compile strategies to facilitate the balanced development of each child. As such, each child is viewed as a unique individual, and they are given the freedom they need to develop at their own pace.
The Montessori environment is designed around this philosophy; allowing children to develop a keen sense of independence and confidence through empowerment. This is an atmosphere of respect – something that contributes to the heartfelt facilitation of a love of learning. The work habits, attitudes and values cultivated during these early years will stay with children as they grow and mature. Randburg Montessori is fully cognisant of the fact that these fundamental growth years will make an impact on the people that children will become.
