Montessori at Roseborough
Education as Preparation for Life
To offer a strong and enriched academic program that provides children with skills that foster independence, self-discipline, and a sense of responsibility. Developing a love for learning that will stay with the child their whole lives.
Respect for the Child
Teachers show respect for children when they help them do things and learn for themselves. When children have choices they are able to develop the skills and abilities necessary for effective learning and positive self-esteem.
An Absorbent Mind
Children can’t help learning. What they learn depends greatly on their teachers, experiences, and environment. Materials as designed to help the child soak up as many experiences as possible, heightening the learning experience.
There are certain periods of time when children focus their attention on specific aspects of the environment to the exclusion of others. For example, a child becoming engrossed in the excitement of learning to count by 100’s and they work on this task for several weeks becoming a master at counting by 100’s.
The idea that children have a deep love and need for purposeful work. Children who are actively involved in a prepared environment and who exercise freedom of choice literally educate themselves, when given the materials that are designed with errors so the child can correct themselves.
The calm, ordered space is designed to facilitate the maximum independent learning and exploration by the child, the freedom and self-discipline to choose materials that engage both the hands and minds of the students. Encourages the child to be concerned about facts and truths, not just what the teacher tells them.
Typically, teachers are thought of as directing the process in a traditional classroom, the directress (lead classroom teacher) is charged with keeping each child supplied with difficulties suitable to his or her strength.
Multi-age classrooms encourage cooperative learning and allow for broad emotional and social development. Each environment is dynamic, creating a nurturing atmosphere where younger children learn from older children. Older children master their knowledge by helping those younger than themselves.
"Education should no longer be mostly imparting of knowledge, but must take a new path, seeking the release of human potentialities." Dr. Maria Montessori
