The Montessori approach is a pedagogical concept that has been in existence for over a hundred years. The work is based on a program designed by Dr Maria Montessori, which involves giving each child the opportunity to develop all their skills, abilities and knowledge at their own pace.
While the focus in traditional kindergartens is placed on the curriculum, in our Montessori kindergarten, the child is in the very centre. The groups are mixed because in this way children develop all kinds of their interests and opportunities and are not strictly defined by what they should do in their age.
The difference in the educator roles is also very important, since the educator through his/her work observes and directs the child in the exercises the child chooses.
Research shows that the Montessori program makes the school adjustment of children easier.
