The 3 most important things in your early childhood:
Montessori children learn is independence, self confidence and a growth mindset.
In the first 3 years of life a child has an absorbent mind, like a sponge, he or she experiences and mimics everything seen, heard or touched – including people, sounds, shapes, textures and movement.
Children learn more quickly and effectively through hands – on application, starting at around age 2. In Montessori children experience the physical sensation of touching and tracing letters coupled with the sounds of letters to help learn the alphabet.
Naming things in the childs environment will provide them with a rich source of language. This indeed helps the child to visualise the objects when he/she is learning phonics.
Reading regularly will enable them to build a love of books and stories.
You can discuss what is happening in the story as it unfolds. This helps your child build comprehension skills
Children use their sense in order to study their environment. Sensorial activities help children in discrimination and order and also helps broaden and refine a child’s sense. It helps them become more logical, perceptive and aware. It is especially important to develop a child’s senses between birth and age 6.
Benefits of Montessori Early Education
Montessori education is uninterrupted work time. Some studies show that uninterrupted work time can boost children’s focus, concentration and discipline.
It can also improve social functions such as self control and regulation.
Another Montessori advantage is concrete learning. In concrete learning children learn through their minds and bodies.
By using their hands to sort and work with objects they engage many of their senses.
They thus learn faster and more efficiently and often become more focused and engaged.
Self correction and self assessment are an integral part of the Montessori learning experience. Children learn to look critically at their work recognise and correct their mistakes and learn from their errors.
By providing children with the freedom to question, probe deeply and make connections Montessori students learn to become confident, self motivated learners that have an intrinsic love of learning.
Montessori education cultivates engaged learners with positive and confident approach to life long learning.
Montessori graduates range from the founders of Google and Amazon.com Prince William and Prince Harry.
Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed. Maria Montessori
