The Montessori philosophy is a whole-child way of teaching that focuses on the growth of the child’s mind, emotions, social skills, and body.
It understands that education isn’t just about learning facts; it’s also about learning how to get along with other people and how to handle emotions. So, the Montessori method is all about helping a child grow and develop in every way.
One of the fundamental differences between Montessori education and traditional teaching methods is the learning approach itself.
The Montessori method is based on the idea that a child’s mind is like a sponge that is always ready to learn new things. So, the main goal of Montessori education is to keep children’s love of learning alive and encourage them to be the best versions of themselves.
