About "The Child Montessori"
At “The Child Montessori”, We follow authentic Montessori philosophy. We have prepared environments for children at each successive developmental plane. Our Montessori learning environment is much different than the traditional model of education. This environment provides children with the opportunity to respond to their natural tendency to learn and work. It also allows children to take responsibility for their own education, giving them the opportunity to function independently and within a community.
Instead of information passing from the teacher to the student, the teacher puts the child in touch with the environment. The teacher helps the children make intelligent choices, explore, and carry out research. Children learn to read, write, and calculate in the same way that they learn to walk and talk – one experiential step after another, teaching themselves. This fosters a love of lifetime learning in the student.
Our Montessori classrooms are geared to the size, pace, and interest of children. They offer space for movement, for individual work and for small group activities. Each classroom is designed to facilitate maximum independent learning and exploration, and has a full range of AMI-approved Montessori educational apparatus for the appropriate age level. These specifically designed materials are sensory-based, self-correcting, arranged according to subject area, and neatly placed on low and open shelves within easy reach of all children.
At each level, the Montessori learning environment is designed for mixed-age group. This provides an opportunity for younger children to learn from older peers, while older children gain satisfaction in sharing their knowledge while reinforcing their own learning.

During my early days of teaching children, there was an incident that stood out to me. A shy three-year-old boy entered our classroom, barely interacting with others and simply observing from a corner. Despite my attempts to involve him in various activities, I found myself unable to engage him. As a new and inexperienced teacher, I began questioning my abilities as an educator. However, my persistence and patience eventually paid off. Several months later, this reserved little boy surprised me by actively participating in all the classroom activities. He had absorbed everything he had silently observed over the past few months. His enthusiasm and progress left me both astounded and overwhelmed.
