Although developed in the early 20th century, Montessori remains a buzz word in education today.
At Prospect House School, selected aspects of the Montessori philosophy are included in our teaching methods for our younger children, simply because they work extremely well. All the more so when incorporated with the early years foundation stage (EYFS) curriculum.
The Montessori method centres on mental and physical freedom and child-initiated learning. This encourages pupils to explore concepts and develop skills through their choices and interaction with specially-designed apparatus and materials.
Montessori offers a journey of active personal discovery rather than passive learning and consistently proves to be an invaluable launch to the start of academic life.
