The Montessori system creates an environment in which children are free to develop their own skills and abilities. In the prepared environment, the children learn to explore and make their own discoveries about the world around them. It allows children opportunities for a broad range of social interaction.
Children are given freedom to develop according to their own needs and tendencies within particular limits. This freedom allows the child to develop independence, good working habits and self discipline.
A cornerstone of Montessori education is indirect preparation. This is a continual process taking place throughout the year wherby children are shown activities which will help them hone skills necessary for later activities. Being looked up to as role models by the younger children and having the opportunity to show them what they have already learnt, is an opportunity all children eagerly await and an experience which has powerful benefits for both the younger and older children.
