The Montessori Method of Education developed by Dr Maria Montessori embraces a child centered approach based on observation of children in their development from birth to adulthood. Dr Maria Montessori’s method has been time tested over 100 years of success in diverse cultures and environments throughout the world. It has endured its universal appeal because it encourages each child to realise full potential through creativity, curiosity, exploration and independent thinking at kinfolk montessori preschool.The Montessori Method is an original education system dedicated to the child for his / her wholesome development and remains as the cutting edge of current thinking in education, brain research and child development.Its enduring longevity and continuing relevance is the product of Dr Montessori’s years of intense study of children and how they grow and learn . The mastering of the discipline of medicine, as the only woman of her era to do so, shaped her philosophy and lead her to design and sequence montessori materials to engage the child. Her scientific observation helped her to support the child’s growth at physical, intellectual and emotional development at each stage of his / her growing process.
Dr Montessori observed that children experience certain sensitive periods or window of opportunity as they grow
through their formative years. The Montessori Method trains teachers to match the lessons and teaching aids to
these sensitive periods when learning is most naturally absorbed and internalized.This strong foundation in early
childhood learning through sensory / motor activities develops the cognitive powers through direct experience -seeing,
hearing, tasting, smelling touching and movement .
The elementary years see this concretisation of concepts in the early stages bear fruits in the understanding of the abstraction and concepts that follow and their application in real world experience. This later evolves into organisation and categorisation of information, facts and figures and universal concepts like equity, freedom and justice. The Montessori children develop order, coordination, concentration and independence.
