“Education is the natural process carried out by a child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment.”- Maria Montessori
What is the Montessori Method of education? It refers to the principles of education introduced by Maria Montessori, who was a physician by profession. Later on, she taught differently abled children and used her scientific observations to develop the renowned teaching method for normal children as well. According to her observations, young people seem to learn best in homelike environments using materials for independent, self-directed learning. Many schools across the world follow her techniques to impart early education.
What are the benefits of Montessori Method? Studies show that during the early years the grasping power of our minds is the highest. Almost 50% of the overall intelligence develops before the age of 4 and 30% by the time one is 8. This education system strives to provide a learning environment where children are able to grasp as much as possible.
Studies show that children educated via this method are quite adaptable, capable to work independently as well as in a collaborative environment. Such non-competitive, self-directed, the atmosphere helps to develop confidence and self-esteem.
