About the Course
The Montessori Method of education, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, is a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood. The Montessori Method is now being successfully implemented in schools in nearly every country of the world.
Her clinical observation of children helped her understand that the children learn from the environment in which they find themselves. Hence, she developed such materials which could be used by children to learn naturally. According to Montessori, learning is a ‘self – directed’ process that is based on some fundamental laws of human nature. The children can learn by themselves in the presence of a suitable environment and the adult’s role is to provide children with such an environment and to keep intact. The Montessori Method gives a lot of freedom to the child to utilize their own observation and skills to learn new things.
It helps the child to become self-sufficient and independent. Montessori Method of education basically fosters and emphasizes the children’s natural drive to learn by providing them a “prepared environment” completely suited for the different stages of development. Montessori Method of teaching is unique as the teacher plays the role of a guide helping the children with their own research and exploration of a subject based on their own interests. It is the duty of a Montessori teacher to lead the children towards independence and self-discipline. Therefore, it is very important that the teachers pursue a Montessori course before venturing into Montessori teaching. Moreover, a Montessori teacher needs to cultivate the qualities of patience and restraint.
