About Dr. Maria Montessori

She was a scientist, and as a good scientist, she was earth-bound and highly spiritual in her pursuit of truth. Through her studies of educational methods, she declared two principles as the foundation of Montessori pedagogy: the universal characteristics of the human child, and he as a unique, unrepeatable, respectable, and admirable individual to be unconditionally accepted as one of life’s most marvelous expressions.

Maria Montessori was the first woman to practice medicine in Italy. A scholar of biology, psychiatry, anthropology, and medicine, she graduated from the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Rome in 1896. As a physician, Dr. Montessori was in touch with young children and became profoundly interested in their development.

She studied children of all races and cultures in many countries around the world, soon seeing the universality of the laws of human development. She continued her observations throughout her life, widening and deepening her understanding until her death in 1952. Also a devoted humanitarian, she was three-times nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for her efforts toward peaceful humanity and for a better world for the children of tomorrow

Montessori Overview

At its core, it simply is a way of being with children that allows each child to develop fully into the person he was destined to be. Just as you make every effort to ensure that your home is loving and safe, we work persistently to ensure that the environment and the teachers will meet your child’s needs with respect and support at each step in his educational journey.

Instead of expecting that he pay attention to the teacher in front of a class of 30 children, it is the Montessori adult who pays close attention to your son or daughter which fosters a trusting relationship. He will have faith that his teacher truly understands and respects him for the human being into which he is transforming.

Our world doesn’t need more test takers, memorizers or followers. Now, more than ever, we need critical thinkers, entrepreneurs, do-ers and go-getters. Montessori education prepares children to take on the future with confidence and zeal, propelled by the gift of self-knowledge and a lifelong passion for learning.

This is education for our rapidly changing world.
This is education for the future.
And this is education for life.

About Bloom Montessori

Not a classroom, a community! Our students grow together into a close-knit, caring environment. Because the curriculum is individualized, your son or daughter can work at their own pace while participating in a mixed age classroom community. Your younger one learns by observing and looking up-to the behavior and activities of the older children. Your older children on the other hand gain self-confidence, leadership skills and responsibility by setting an example for the younger friends.

He will be introduced to a broad range of concepts and activities in individual and small group lessons. The real learning, however, occurs through independent activity by choosing to explore the Montessori materials, repeating it and perfecting it.

Our certified teachers chose this career because of their love for children and dedication to Montessori methodology. Their depth of training and knowledge is amplified by the joyful and deep relationship they develop with your son or daughter through the three year journey together.

Unlike conventional classrooms, where all children are expected to pay close attention to the teacher, our program does the opposite – the teacher is trained to closely observe your child’s interests, tendencies, abilities and needs. You won’t see the teacher standing at the front of the classroom at a chalkboard, but rather down at your child’s level, engaged with her or a small group.

Instead of a top down curriculum based upon age, the teacher is trained to respect your child’s unique potential and connects him with the lesson best suited at that precise moment of development. He will be challenged according to her ability, not to a generic standard.

While most of the day is spent in self-directed work, there are also times for group activity and play. The teacher may gather a group for songs or to tell stories about a cultural, scientific or historical theme of interest. Ample time is also given to run, dig, explore and play with friends.

Our Mission

Our mission is to prepare children for life. We celebrate each child’s individuality and help them discover how they can best contribute to our world and culture to the best of their abilities. All children are naturally curious and love to learn, we support this innate drive by providing environments that can meet every child’s unique developmental needs by creating a staff of loving and well-prepared adults that actively support our mission.

A Day In The Life Of Our Students

Our Montessori trained adults help your children build a solid foundation towards their academic journey. Our environment includes few main aspects which are explained below.

Exercises of practical life (EPL): He is attracted to things that give him independence and control of his own life. An important part of which is making sure his school environment isn’t too different from his home environment. At our Montessori, special materials enable him to learn to tie his shoes, fasten his buttons, and use many such devices and materials that he sees at his own home but is restricted or forbidden to work with. As the materials are scaled to his size, he enjoys sweeping, dusting, washing, polishing and gardening. Lessons on courtesy and greeting permit him to deal with everyday situations. The basis of the child’s interest is that these activities are real and exist in his everyday life. It provides the very foundation on which he approaches all other work and also understands the dignity of labour.

Sensorial: From the age three to six, children all the activities that they experienced are mainly due to their sharp senses. The focus here is to enhance these senses through various means. visual, tactile, olfactory, kinesthetic etc are some of the senses that he completely relies upon in order to remember complex concepts of our day to day life. These tools of life afford him the ability to form his frame of reference with which he can classify those inputs to his senses and allow greater opportunity to be successful in all other fields.

Arithmetic: The materials for mathematics introduce the concept of quantity first and then the symbols for quantity – the numbers 1 through 10. He needs to understand what exactly the number “TWO” means before he memorizes the name. The quantity is introduced by a series of rods, which he can count and compare. He matches sets of symbol cards with the rods. Using a variety of beads and symbol cards he becomes familiar with the numbers as a decimal system including concrete experiences with the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. These exercises not only teach him to calculate, but they provide a deep understanding of how numbers function.

Language : According to Dr. Montessori, the evolution of language begins with the infant’s unique capacity to absorb intact fragments of language, which will serve as a basis for his development. This continues through an orderly, unconscious process of assimilation and abstraction. He first discovers that sounds have meaning, and then he isolates the parts of speech. Finally, he grasps the use of sentences. The constant assimilation of language results in a sudden expansion of vocabulary. He learns the oral language naturally either from his home environment or his surroundings. The work of the teacher is to expose his to the equivalent forms of written language which he learns through the same general pattern of development.The Montessori child begins reading when he is ready and proceeds at his own pace. His experiences in practical life and sensorial education serve as a preparation for this.

Science: We use simple science experiences to introduce and illustrate the various phenomenas of nature. For example, the need of oxygen with the use of candle. Other scientific experiments form the basis for the study of biology, botany, geography and geology as well as physics and chemistry. The reason why we introduce science at such a young age is to give him knowledge of things and to have respect for the life around him.

Music: He love the opportunity to express themselves musically. They have the opportunity to sing and dance with our wonderful music teachers.

Special events: We like to celebrate birthdays, holidays and special events with the children including friendships day, a winter holiday program, summer program, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, graduation and more

Extra curricular activities: Exploring is essential for children to understand their surroundings. Children enjoy a variety of activities. In addition to our Montessori program, we offer music, creative dance, yoga, pottery classes, painting etc. All festivals are celebrated and we have sports day and annual day.

A Montessori program is too extensive to give a brief treatment to every area. For more details , it is recommended that you visit a Montessori classroom.

Montessori Program (2 years 6 months to 6 years)
The montessori program is a mixed-age environment where children spend three years in the same classroom getting to know each other and their teachers well. The continuity of returning to the same room each year makes for a strong classroom community, for children.
Dr. Maria Montessori (1870 – 1952) developed a philosophy of education, which helps children to develop and learn naturally, through spontaneous, self-directed activities. The child uses all five senses - touch, taste, smell, sight, and hearing - to understand and absorb information about his or her environment. Dr. Montessori also recognized that during the first six years of life, children experience a series of "sensitive periods". We take advantage of these “sensitive periods” by helping the children refine their senses and assisting them in perfecting these natural learning tools. One main feature of Montessori education is its hands-on approach to learning. Students work with specially designed materials, manipulating and investigating until they master the lesson inside. Teachers guide students through the curriculum as children are ready for each new challenge, introducing lessons and then letting children practice what they have learned. As children grow, the classroom materials grow with them in the sense that older children use the materials to explore curriculum in new and deeper ways. The 3-6 year old goes through an intense period of change, including the transition to cooperative play and more complex social interactions, a language explosion leading to beginning skills in writing and reading, the emergence of number sense and the foundations of math, and great changes in physical development.
Art and craft is part of the montessori program which helps children foster their creativity.

FAQ

For children six and under, Montessori emphasizes learning through all five senses, not just through listening, watching, or reading. Children in Montessori classes learn at their own, individual pace and according to their own choice of activities from hundreds of possibilities. They are not required to sit and listen to a teacher talk to them as a group, but are engaged in individual or group activities of their own, with materials that have been introduced to them 1:1 by the teacher who knows what each child is ready to do. Learning is an exciting process of discovery, leading to concentration, motivation, self-discipline, and a love of learning.
Above age six children learn to do independent research, arrange field trips to gather information, interview specialists, create group presentation, dramas, art exhibits, musical productions, science projects, and so forth. There is no limit to what they create in this kind of intelligently guided freedom. There are no text books or adult-directed group lessons or daily schedule. There is great respect for the choices of the children, but they easily keep up with or surpass what they would be doing in a more traditional setting. There is no wasted time and children enjoy their work and study. The children ask each other for lessons and much of the learning comes from sharing and inspiring each other instead of competing with each other.

Montessori classrooms emphasize competition with oneself: self-monitoring, self-correction, and a variety of other executive skills aimed at continuous improvement. Students typically become comfortable with their strengths and learn how to address their weaknesses. In older classes, students commonly participate in competitive activities with clear “winners” (auditions for limited opera roles, the annual spelling bee, etc.) in which students give their best performances while simultaneously encouraging peers to do the same. It is a healthy competition in which all contenders are content that they did their best in an environment with clear and consistent rules.

Montessori is designed to help all children reach their fullest potential at their own unique pace. A classroom whose children have varying abilities is a community in which everyone learns from one another and everyone contributes. Moreover, multi age grouping allows each child to find his or her own pace without feeling “ahead” or “behind” in relation to peers.

Research studies show that Montessori children are well prepared for later life academically, socially, and emotionally. In addition to scoring well on standardized tests, Montessori children are ranked above average on such criteria as following directions, turning in work on time, listening attentively, using basic skills, showing responsibility, asking pro-active questions, showing enthusiasm for learning, and adapting to new situations.
