Montessori methodology is a comprehensive educational approach to children based on the observation of their needs and their natural learning tendencies as they unfold with age. The educational approach is through "prepared environments" catering to different age groups. Under a trained Montessori teacher, children cultivate concentration, self-discipline, motivation and a desire to learn.
The period from birth to 6 years of age is the most formative period in an adult. It is during this period that the child absorbs the most from his environment and shows a remarkable ability to learn and assimilate without any conscious effort. A Montessori teacher recognises this and channelizes this period constructively through activities in a specially prepared environment..
