Our aim is to constantly promote learning through the Montessori principles and methods of teaching in an environment that is safe, structured, stimulating and flexible.
The Diploma in Montessori method of education is based on the fact that children pass through phases that, at certain stages throughout their development, they have sensitivity to learning. If any phase during the child’s development is hindered or missed, it will have an adverse effect on him. For example, a child’s sensitivity to language begins around 3 months and lasts up to about 5 ½ years. By the age of six the child will have acquired a large vocabulary, from almost no direct teaching. If a child has not been exposed to language regularly during this period his language development will be irreversibly damaged.
The future teacher has to go through practical sessions before she demonstrates an activity to the child.
