Montessori is a method of education that is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play. In Montessori classrooms, children make creative choices in their learning, while the classroom and the highly trained teacher offer age-appropriate activities to guide the process. Children work in groups and individually to discover and explore the knowledge of the world and to develop their maximum potential.
Montessori classrooms are usually beautifully crafted environments designed to meet the needs of children in a specific age range.
Every material in a Montessori classroom supports an aspect of child development, creating a match between the child’s natural interests and the available activities. Children can learn through their own experience and at their own pace. They can respond at any moment to the natural curiosities that exist in all humans and build a solid foundation for life-long learning.
At iKids Montessori Academy, we have the same values. We believe that all children are competent, capable, curious and rich in potential. We recognize the importance of the first six years of a child’s life. We desire to ensure that each and every child in our care is successful by fostering these areas in their daily experiences.
In our classes we offer freedom of choice, within limits; children learn and create their individuality through purposeful activity. Our goal is for each child to be successful in reaching their full potential in all areas of life. We will guide and nurture them to find joy in learning and support them in building self-esteem and a strong sense of purpose that will last a lifetime.
Each week, our team of educators, plan and implement child-initiated and adult-supported experiences. Our teachers include Certified Montessori Educators and Registered Early Childhood Educators, who aim to inspire children to make their own choices and collaborate in activities throughout the day.
