I love to learn, I love to educate myself

I love to learn, I love to educate myself


“Montessori is not a one-child-fits-all approach to education, children are encouraged to learn at their own pace and as a result teachers often find that students show better academic performance, emotional maturity and social skills. In fact many go on to lead exceptional lives.

Freedom within limits. This phrase is often used when describing one of the key components of a Montessori school — children learn best when they are given the reins to their education. In that respect Montessori schools are structured to allow students to have an active say in what, when and how they learn, with older students as mentors and teachers as helpful guides. Special thanks to Humberside Montessori School.”
