Age 2

 

The first years of life are the most formative years.It is a time when children effortlessly absorb concepts and habits.It is also a time period when the roots of learning are established.At the Montessori School of Florence, children find an environment which provides the very best opportunity for individual growth and exploration.Areas of learning are defined, yet the space is open to provide plenty of room for the social interaction and movement required for growth and development.Age appropriate Montessori materials allow the child to follow his or her natural curiosity in a safe and nurturing environment.Areas of focus include language, motor skills, and social interaction.

 

 

Ages 3 to 6

Dr. Maria Montessori believed that the goal of education is to help each child reach his or her full potential. In a Montessori classroom, children cultivate their own desire to learn in an environment that is supportive and challenging. The children are grouped in three-year age spans. This grouping promotes a sense of family or community as well as providing role models for the younger children. The primary Montessori environment promotes the development of motor skills, a sense of order, concentration, and independence. The Montessori curriculum, under the direction of a Montessori-certified teacher, allows the child to experience the joy of discovery and learning. Dr. Maria Montessori reasoned that a child’s experiences could be enriched by a classroom where specially designed and beautiful materials demonstrate basic educational information. The multi-sensory, sequential and self-correcting materials facilitate the learning of skills leading to abstract ideas. There is nothing a child cannot touch, for this is how a child learns. Learning becomes an exciting opportunity rather than a chore to be completed.
