5 Main Montessori Principles
Conclusion – Children need protecting from many dangers in their early life but they also need to be allowed sample opportunities for learning and independent play. A child craves independence and the more he can feel in control of his daily life – the more positive his experiences.
Patience and seeing the bigger picture with children is so important. Ask yourself what you want for your child?
The Montessori parent gives their child space to explore the world they live in for an uninterrupted period. With observation you will see when they need help moving on or whether they are tired or whether they should be left alone to be absorbed in whatever they are doing.
Respecting your child, ensuring their environment is easily accessible, and allowing them to be independent, are all simple and immediate ways to bring Montessori into your daily routines. You will see results almost immediately – in your child’s social, emotional, and physical development. As you continue to improve and expand your Montessori understanding you can be confident you are giving your child the start they need to be successful. Empower your child with the right skills and mindset to help them succeed in all areas of life – Not just Academics. After 25 + years in Montessori Education, I can definitely say that the Academic side of life is easy, it is everything else that needs help and attention.
