Hands on learning

A Different Approach

The Montessori method of education is a child-centered approach that encourages children to pursue learning based on what interests them most. With various learning stations available children are encouraged to seek out what they hope to learn through hands-on activities. Children are able to become independent by being given freedom of choice, repetition, and movement.  

Major Benefits

Modern day leaders such as Prince William and the founders of Google advocate for the Montessori method. The benefits of the Montessori method have been shown to include strong leadership skills, increased creativity, and cooperation. As teachers facilitate daily activities the students are able to cooperate together freely to accomplish tasks together. Children work on tasks for the joy it brings which naturally leads to increased creativity in discovering different processes for accomplishing the same goal. 

Maria Montessori and her
positive effects on learning
An Italian innovator, teacher, and physician, Maria Montessori pioneered the educational method which builds on the principles of how children's development can be encouraged and enriched through natural means and methods. Maria opened her first Montessori school in Rome on Jan 6, 1907 called the Casa dei Bambini. Today, there are now thousands of Montessori schools all around the world.
Why Prince William
advocates Montessori
From experiencing Montessori first hand as a child, It's clear that Prince William sees the benefits of the Montessori method as he now sends his own son George to the Westacre Montessori Nursery School in Norfolk.
