Introduction to the Montessori method – How it helps children in kindergarten

The Montessori method is a unique early development system based on the writings of the Italian educator Maria Montessori. She has gained worldwide recognition for her effectiveness and humanistic approach to education. The methodology is based on the idea that every child has a huge potential that needs to be developed in accordance with their individual pace and interests.

The basic principles of the Montessori methodology

  • freedom of choice: children choose what to do, at what pace and for how long.
  • Independence: children learn to perform various tasks independently, without the help of adults.
  • Practicality: all materials and exercises in the Montessori methodology are aimed at developing practical skills and cognitive activity of children.
  • Respect for the individual: Every child in the Montessori system is a unique person who is treated with respect and attention.

How is the Montessori technique used in kindergarten?

In kindergarten, where the Montessori technique is used, a specially prepared environment is created that stimulates the cognitive activity of children and their desire for independence. This environment includes various materials and exercises that are divided into several zones:

  • The zone of practical life: Here children learn to perform various household tasks such as cleaning, cooking, and self-care.
  • Sensory area: here children develop their senses using various materials and exercises.
  • Language zone: here children get acquainted with letters, learn to read and write.
  • Mathematics zone: here children learn to count, solve problems, and learn the basics of mathematics.
  • Space zone: here children get acquainted with the world around them, study nature, history, culture.

Advantages of the Montessori method

  • Development of independence and initiative: Children learn to perform various tasks independently, which contributes to the development of their self-confidence and responsibility.
  • Development of cognitive activity: children will explore the world with interest, as all the materials and exercises in the Montessori method are aimed at developing their curiosity and research skills.
  • Development of social skills: Children learn to interact with each other, cooperate and resolve conflicts peacefully.
  • Love of learning: children in the Montessori system learn with pleasure, as the learning process is based on play and independent activity.

Practical examples and tips for parents

To help your child get the most out of Montessori techniques, you can use some of these principles at home as well:

  • Organize the space: Create a corner at home where the child can go about their business using affordable and safe materials.
  • Encourage self-reliance: Give your child the opportunity to choose activities and complete daily tasks on their own.
