Montessori education was founded in 1907 by Dr. Maria Montessori, the first woman in Italy to become a physician. She based her educational methods on scientific observation of children’s learning process. Guided by her discovery that children teach themselves, Dr. Montessori designed a prepared environment in which children could choose from a number of developmentally appropriate activities.

The Montessori environment contains specially designed, manipulative materials that invite children to engage in learning activities of their own choices. Under guidance of a trained teacher, children in Montessori classrooms learn by making discoveries with the materials, cultivating concentration, motivation, self-discipline and a love of learning.

Five key principles set the tone for Montessori learning at Little Wonders Montessori Childcare.

Principle 1 : Children Ought To Be Recognized As Different From Adults

Compared to adults, children think in different patterns and they learn in different ways. They possess sensibilities and mental powers which are unique to their particular levels of developing awareness.

Principle 2 : Each Child Is Unique And Differs From One Another 

Montessori materials have been designed carefully and thoroughly researched to fit the developmental needs and characteristics of the children. Based on the different developmental pace of each child, different learning experiences appropriate to the child’s needs and abilities will be provided.

Principle 3 : The Most Important Years Of Growth Are The First Six Years Of Life

This is when unconscious learning is gradually brought to the conscious level. This crucial phase sets the foundation for openness, curiosity and wonder, the attributes for successful lifelong learning. Montessori children learn to initiate things on their own. They are more open to change, growth and new experiences. They are ready to get more out of life itself.

Principle 4 : Every Child Is Gifted In Some Way

A rich, stimulating environment will allow each child to bring forth his or her own special talents and abilities.

Principle 5 : Children Have A Genuine Need For Purposeful Work

A child works for different reasons than an adult. Rather than for profit or status, a child works willingly to acquire something infinitely more precious – the unfolding of his or her human potential and value to mankind.

All these key principles coincide with Little Wonders Montessori’s Vision and Mission with regard  to our preschool education at our centres.
