 Montessori Homeschooling

Developed from the work of Dr. Maria Montessori, this style of

teaching aims at duplicating natural laws that a child faces in 

life. Thus the aim of the teacher is to control the environment 

and not the child. It was observed that children who are left free 

to interact with their environment developed an innate 

self-discipline, love for order and natural curiosity.

The Montessori method of teaching is especially suitable to the 

preschooler who wants to do everything by himself. Finding ways in 

which your child can participate in the cleaning, washing, 

cooking, gardening and other 'adult' activities sets the perfect 

backdrop for the learning experience. By providing such 

opportunities for independence, the child's self-esteem also gets 

a huge boost.

Artistic, cultural and scientific activities abound in the 

Montessori 3-6 class. There is no TV, junk food, or computer. 

Material is selected carefully. The child is never forced to work. 

Instead he is encouraged to do things that interest him, and the 

teacher picks up the teaching from cues given by the child.  The 

Montessori method focuses on the child's inborn ability to learn 

from his surroundings. Thus the teacher aims to encourage the 

natural curiosity of the child. He is never forced to learn or 

explore. When the child understands why he needs to learn 

something, he will love the learning process.
