Our USP of Montessori Education
Montessori education offers children opportunities to develop their potential as they step out into the world as engaged, competent, confident, responsible, and respectful citizens with an understanding and appreciation that learning is for life.
Each child is valued as a unique individual. In IAMPS we recognise that children learn in different ways, and accommodate all learning styles. Students are also free to learn at their own pace, each advancing through the curriculum as he is ready, guided by the teacher and an individualised learning plan.
Beginning at an early age, Montessori students develop order, coordination, concentration, and independence Our classroom design, materials, and daily routines support the individual’s emerging “self-regulation” (ability to educate one ’s self and to think about what one is learning)
Students are part of a close, caring community.In IAMPS we incorporate multi-age classroom—typically spanning 3 years—re-creates a family structure. Teachers model respect, loving kindness, and a belief in peaceful conflict resolution.
Montessori students enjoy freedom within limits.Working within structured setting set by their teachers, students are active participants in deciding what their focus of learning will be.
Montessorians understand that internal satisfaction drives the child’s curiosity and interest and results in joyous learning that is sustainable over a lifetime.
Students are supported in becoming active seekers of knowledge Our teachers provide an environment where students have the freedom and the tools to pursue answers to their own questions.
Self-correction and self-assessment are an integral part of the Montessori classroom approach.As they mature, students learn to look critically at their work, and become adept at recognising, correcting, and learning from their errors.
Given the freedom and support to question, to probe deeply, and to make connections, Montessori students become confident, enthusiastic and self-directed learners. They are able to think critically, work collaboratively, and act boldly—a skill set for the 21st century.
How Is Our Education System Unique
Our Whole Child Approach
The primary goal of our Montessori program is to help each child reach their full potential in all areas of life. Activities we conduct helps to promote the development of their social skills, emotional growth and physical coordination as well as cognitive preparation for their future intellectual academic endeavors. The holistic curriculum, under the direction of a specifically prepared teacher, allows our children to experience the joy of learning, the time to enjoy the process and ensures the development of self esteem. It provides the experiences from which children create their knowledge.
Our Prepared Environment
In order for self directed learning to take place, our whole learning environment – classroom, materials and social setting / atmosphere – is supportive to every child. Our teachers provide the necessary resources, including opportunities for children to function in a safe and positive environment. Together, the teacher and child form a relationship based on trust and respect that fosters self-confidence and a willingness to try new things.
Our Montessori Material
Dr. Montessori’s observations of the kinds of things which children enjoy and go back to do repeatedly, led her to design a number of multi-sensory, sequential and self correcting materials to facilitate learning and are used in IAMPS.
In Montessori setting teacher functions as a designer of the environment originally called as ‘directress’,, resource person, role model, demonstrator, record-keeper and meticulous observer of each child’s behavior and growth, who facilitates learning.–Learnings are specialized for the age group with which a teacher will work, i.e. toddler, pre-primary or pimary level.
