Belmont Montessori School is dedicated to following Dr. Maria Montessori’s Philosophy and methodology. it is hands-on, multi-aged, developmentally appropriate, independent learning environment for children.
The Montessori teacher – is an observer whose ultimate goal is to intervene less and less as children develop. The teacher creates an atmosphere of calm, order and joy in the classroom and is there to help and encourage the children in all their efforts. Knowing how to observe constructively and when, and how much, to intervene, is one of the most important talents of a Montessori teacher.
Under the guidance of a Montessori trained teacher, children in a Montessori classroom learn by making discoveries with the materials cultivating concentration, motivation, self-discipline and a love of learning that remains with them for life.
Montessori classrooms – are bight, spacious multi-age learning communities. Children are free to move about and enjoy independently chosen activities. The environment based on the needs and the natural development of children.
Children experience – a blend of freedom and self-discipline in a place especially designed to meet their developmental needs. Practical occasions for developing social relationships in this environment. The inherent flexibility of the Montessori program allows it to be adapted to the need of children regardless of their level of ability, learning style or social maturity. A wide range of activities and manipulative materials are arranged in the following learning and exploration areas and are provided for the holistic development of the child.
We aspire to emphasise the importance of independence, self-confidence, self-discipline, curiosity, creative, problem-solving, co-operation and respect for others, and self; thereby helping to develop competent, considerate, responsible members of society.
