Why Montessori School?
Montessori is an approach to education with the fundamental belief that a child learns best within a social environment, which supports and respects each individual’s unique development.
The creator of “The Montessori Method of Education,” Dr. Maria Montessori, based this approach on her scientific observations of young children’s behavior. She became involved with education as a doctor teaching mentally handicapped children.
In 1907, she opened a child care center for the children of poor families. She based the program on her observations that young children learn best in a home-like setting filled with developmentally conducive materials that provide experiences contributing to the growth of self-motivated, independent learners. She carried her message throughout the world, including the United States, as early as 1912.
Dr. Montessori believed that “no human being is educated by another person. He must do it himself or it will never be done. A truly educated individual continues to learn long after he leaves the classroom because he is motivated from within by a natural curiosity and love for knowledge.”
At Holmdel Montessori School, our goal is not to fill the child with facts from a pre-selected course of studies, but rather to cultivate his own natural desire to learn.
Impact of Montessori Education on the children
Children educated in the Montessori Method grow into competent learners who know how to learn and love learning. A solid foundation developed early in life fosters self-confident, contributing adults.
In Dr. Montessori’s words:
“…They will be witnesses of the unfolding of the human soul and to the raising of a New Man who will not be the victim of events, but will have the clarity of vision to direct and shape the future of human society.”
