Junior Pre Montessori Room

What is the Montessori method?
The Montessori method is an approach to educating children based on the research and experiences of Italian physician and educator Dr Maria Montessori. The main idea of Montessori Method is that every child is treated with respect, given freedom within the limits of a carefully structured environment, and allowed to develop naturally at their own pace. See our resource centre for more details on Dr Maria Montessori and the Montessori method of teaching.
