Dr MARIA MONTESSORI
Some of you may not have heard of the Montessori approach to learning.
At Your Montessori, we believe we lay the foundations to your child's education. A day nursery and preschool where your child has the opportunity to excel each day. We assist the discovery of teaching your child the art of self-discipline and motivation, whilst sparking their love for learning.
The Montessori approach looks at the whole picture, from teaching to socialising, to the environment the child interacts with, and uses these elements to bring educational value and aid childhood development.
Montessori is a system of education for your child to develop their natural abilities and interests rather than focusing on formal teaching methods. Montessori emphasises the learning through all five senses. Your child will learn at their own pace whilst taking part in their own choice of activities.
Where Did it Begin?
Dr Maria Montessori began exploring her educational philosophy in the early years of the Twentieth Century and opened her first school in Rome in 1906. At the Casa dei Bambini (Children’s House) she pioneered teaching techniques and educational ideas that are now recognised as being way ahead of their time.
Through observations of children’s learning patterns, Dr Montessori developed the principles that would underpin the teaching philosophy that bears her name. Each child is an individual who marches to their own pace and learning should be fun.
At Your Montessori, we have created an environment where children feel relaxed and ready to learn. We celebrate the individual child and the way in which they’re constantly evolving. We recognise that children have different likes, dislikes, strengths and development needs.
With extensive resources, facilities and materials on hand, and access to extra-curricular classes such as Spanish, yoga and sports, there is always an exciting, multi-sensory environment to keep little minds engaged at Your Montessori Pre-School & Day Nursery.
