Montessori Theory

The foundation principles and concepts of Maria Montessori theory that can be applied across all ages: Independence, Observation, Following the Child, Correcting the Child, Prepared Environment and Absorbent Mind. It is within these concepts we find the logic behind why things are such in a Montessori atmosphere. These are goals and values that Maria Montessori held with regards to the education of children.

Reference:

  • Independence
    • Independence When the children are able to do things for themselves
    • There is an increase in their self belief and even self confidence and esteem that they may carry on throughout their life.
  • Observation
    • If the child starts banging on objects, they have the need for that gross motor activity, and then give them a drum.
    • This is how observation can help create harmony, fulfilling the child’s current needs.
  • Following the Child
    • Follow them in what they need to do.
    • If they want to climb give them opportunities to climb in a safe manner but allow them, do not be overprotective.
  • Correcting the child
    • Children make mistakes, they may spill something, or drop food unintentionally, etc., and there is no need to raise your voice.
    • Why don’t we get a cloth and wipe it up.
