Montessori/CMS 101

Maria Montessori
  • Her goal through education was to raise a
    generation of people who would work to promote
    world peace
  •  If help and salvation are to come, they can
    only come from the children, for the children are
    the makers of men.

3
Whole Child
  • The Montessori approach provides a superior
    education, but is really designed to support the
    development of the human being.

4
Components of Montessori
  • Chief Components
  • Independence
  • Self-motivation
  • Respect and love for life
  • Education for Life
  • Important Supporting Components
  • Role of the adult
  • Role of the environment
  • Free the child's potential, and you will
    transform him into the world

5
Education for Life
  • Education comes from the Latin words educare,
    meaning to bring up and ducere, meaning to
    lead.
  • We are raising, bringing up these children to
    be successful in all aspects of life and to
    develop and sustain a love for learning.

6
Role of the Environment
Preparation of the environment is extremely
important in providing Education for Life.
Classrooms are designed to foster engagement,
independence and self correction.
7
Environment
  • Beautiful and Orderly

8
Environment
  • Designed so materials are accessible and complete
    at all times.

Environment

    freedom of movement

Environment

    children explore their world, understand concepts
    and develop essential cognitive skills.

11
Role of the Adult
The role of the adult is dynamic and requires a
comprehensive understanding of the sensitive
periods and planes of development. The adults
in a Montessori environment must know how to
guide and lead while fostering independent
thinking and self direction.
