The Montessori Method of education compliments the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. It was founded by Dr. Maria Montessori, Italy’s first female physician who was interested in how children learn. Dr. Maria Montessori created intriguing materials that invite children to manipulate, explore and cultivate their individual initiative, curiosity and motivation, the key qualities of a life-long learner. Dr. Maria Montessori also understood that the classroom should be carefully arranged to provide freedom to explore and the guidance from a carefully trained teacher. Learning becomes for all children a joyful path on which they are guided by their innate curiosity and delight in discovery.
Studies have confirmed Dr. Maria Montessori’s belief that intellectual skills develop when a child’s learning process stimulates as many senses as possible. Montessori education engages children emotionally as well as physically with intriguing, hands-on materials and appropriately challenging concepts. As they grow through a Montessori education which compliment the EYFS Framework, children develop their aesthetic, artistic sense and learn both what Dr. Maria Montessori called the Practical Life Skills of everyday living as well as the disciplines of language arts, mathematics, science, art, music, geography and history. They become confident and eager learners.
