Montessori School at WPC
PRE K – 2ND GRADE
The Montessori Method is a student-centered, observation-based approach to education, based on the research, writings, and philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. The first Montessori School was opened in Rome, Italy in 1907, and the legacy of Maria Montessori lives on in Montessori schools around the world.
Guides (teachers) are trained to observe and follow the student’s natural tendencies/motivations. Activities in the classroom are called “work” rather than “toys”, as they are purposeful and the work of the child. Materials are child-sized, beautiful, and made of real and breakable materials (glass, wood, metal, etc.). The students take care of their environment (the classroom, gardens, and state parks), nurture their class pets and community, and explore their senses. Examples of “work” include food preparation, stringing beads (helps with pencil grip and concentration), counting activities, and language games. All work is freely chosen after they’ve received a lesson on it. Lessons are presented as readiness is observed.Learn More
