Almost a century back, Dr. Maria Montessori, a physician from Italy, created and developed a system of educating children, that is still being used in schools all over the world. This is a system, where children are encouraged to think and work independently with specially designed montessori learning materials that helps improve their emotional, physical and social skills. There is a misconception that Montessori learning is only for really small kids, but the fact is that it is a method of teaching that can be employed at several stages of a child’s life. Students have the freedom to follow their own spirit of curiosity at a pace that is most comfortable for them.
When children are given the freedom to be curious, to ask questions, they will probe deeper into topics to find answers that might not be obvious. They will make connections that we might not have even imagined and all this will allow them to become confident, self-assured human beings. Imagine something simple like a wooden nesting rainbow – to us it might be just the colours of the rainbow, but to an inquisitive mind, it is a set of colours, shapes that are interesting and then is a fact that it can be put together in several ways. There is no reason that they have to only sit within one another – stack them on top of each other, make circles and anything your imagination lets you do!
