Reaching Your Potential in a Montessori Classroom

Reaching Your Potential in a Montessori Classroom

When your child enters the Montessori school, they enter a learning environment where the primary goal is to have them reach their full potential. This will be achieved through an education plan that is not just a means to an end, but rather an aid to life. They will create a learning environment that allows for creativity, innovation and individuality where the lessons are not generated from a curriculum, but rather through natural development.

A Montessori school lays the foundation for your child's future and no matter the age, ability or economics there is a place for your child to come and grow into a confident and successful learner. As a student in a Montessori school your child will be motivated and enthusiastic to learn. They will become better socialized and able to solve their own conflicts. Other potentials reached will be to become fluent in reading and understanding mathematical concepts and gain a confident self-esteem.

Your child will reach his or hers full potential through the Montessori principles of using movement to enhance their learning. They will learn while applying "hands-on" to lessons, not sitting at a table or desk while instructed. They will be in mixed age groups that will allow them to learn from children older and younger and encourages them to observe and relate to their differences.

The Montessori school uses teachers as guides who will lead your child through their education and development. They will observe how your child is interacting and how well they are going through the lessons to know when your child is ready to be presented with new information and experiences. Allowing your child to be successful before placing new challenges in front of them will give them a feeling of self-esteem. They will view themselves as being able to succeed and by this get a feeling of confidence and self-worth. The confidence they will build in themselves will enable them not only to continue learning but want to continue learning and achieve their full potential.

The Power of Learning by Doing

The Power of Learning by Doing

Your child is a unique individual and his or her education should be unique to accommodate their learning style. When your child is allowed a certain amount of freedom to learn at their own pace; their natural curiosity will be encouraged. This type of learning environment brings them wonderful results in learning that will stay with them over a lifetime.

The Montessori environment believes in the power of "learning by doing" and allows students to use their natural curiosity, guided by their teacher to discover and learn about the world around them. At a local school in your Bay Area is a Montessori setting for your child to enter a classroom that will allow them the freedom and provide them the tools to find answers to their own questions.

At an early age your child will develop concentration, independence, coordination and develop a sense of order from a classroom setting designed for them to "learn by doing". As your child is given the freedom to investigate the world around them with the guidance from their teacher they become confident and enthusiastic self-learners.

At a local school in your area you can find a Montessori program for your son or daughter that will allow them to learn in an educational playground. Our classrooms are created with a variety of developmental activities that stimulate your child's growth in many levels; academically, physically and emotionally. By entering your child into this type of self-directed learning method, rather than the traditional classroom setup found in most local schools; you will be giving them the opportunity to grow and learn through things that actually interest them and encourage learning.

In the Montessori learning environment your child will have the freedom to move around the room, they will not be confined to a desk listening to someone give them information. They will move around and discover different workstations created with educational materials that correlate to the lesson of the day. They will continue to be active as they set up their work area by choosing which learning activity interests them, physically using the items to create their lesson and then clean up area when they finish. This form of independence will create a totally enjoyable learning experience.
