What is Montessori Education?
Montessori is a method of education based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative drama. In Montessori classrooms, children make creative choices in their teaching, while classrooms and highly trained teachers offer age-appropriate activities to guide the process. Children work in groups and personally discover and explore the world’s knowledge and develop their maximum potential.
Montessori classrooms are beautifully designed environments designed to meet the needs of children in a specific age range. Dr. Maria Montessori found that experiential learning in this type of classroom led to a deep understanding of understanding language, mathematics, science, music, social interaction and much more. Most Montessori classrooms are secular in nature, although the Montessori educational system can be successfully integrated into a trust-based program.
Each material in the Montessori class supports one aspect of child development, which produces a match between the child’s natural interests and available activities. Children can learn from their experience and at their own pace. They can answer all natural curiosities at any moment, which are present in all human beings and make a solid basis for learning throughout life.
Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) was founded in 1929 by Maria Montessori to protect the integrity of her work and to support high standards for both teacher training and schools. Today, AMI continues to maintain the vision of Maria Montessori while cooperating with contemporary research in neuroscience and child development. Montessori Northwest AMI is proud to be an official teacher training center, train teachers to work with children from birth to twelve years of age.
