What is Montessori?

Montessori education is an educational approach developed by Italian physician and educator, Maria Montessori. Montessori education is practised in an estimated 22,000 schools worldwide.

Montessori emphasises independence, freedom within limits and respect for a child’s natural psychological development. The Association Montessori International cite the following elements as essential:
• mixed age classrooms
• 3-hour uninterrupted work period
• student choice of activity from within a prescribed range of options
• students learn concepts from working with specialised educational materials rather than by direct instruction

Brisbane Montessori School offers children the opportunity to realise their potential in a non-competitive environment and seeks to promote:
• self-confidence and self-esteem
• a sense of achievement and self worth
• a sense of responsibility for themselves and their actions
• independence and adaptability
• cooperation with others and a sense of community
• respect for the rights and needs of others
• initiative and self-motivation
• concentration and persistence in completing a task
• critical thinking by practising choice

The Montessori approach provides the foundations for 'Learning for Life'.
