A love for learning; exploring and discovering the world through work; finding joy in caring for the world around me – these are just a few experiences that children will have when they come to our school. RTI Montessori focusses on the holistic education of the child.
There can be no education of the mind without the preparation of the body. So, along with language and math activities, the child also works on other areas like the activities related to practical life, science, geography, botany zoology. The work in these areas come together as one to appeal to the innate sensibilities of the child, all the while providing opportunities for movement, social interaction and expression. Walk in and find out what Dr. Montessori meant when she said ‘Education as aid to life’.
The RTI Montessori Training Centre is right next door and you may even get lucky and bump into Ms. Zarin Malva, our experienced and respected trainer at the centre, who has trained all our staff as well.
Why Choose Montessori
“The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child’s own natural desire to learn.”
-Dr. Maria Montessori
We follow a clearly articulated approach that takes into account the individual characteristics of the child.
Montessori develops the whole child
Montessori emphasizes movement, hands on activity, repetition and focused engagement over time in a manner that develops cognitive thinking and strengthens critical neurological networks.
Montessori teachers are experts
The teacher establishes, maintains and utilizes a prepared environment run on child rather than adult time. The teacher uses her expertise to create, inspire and direct a learning community that meets the needs of the children.
A unique, engaging learning environment
Montessori environments aim to encourage the growth of active learners. Children make discoveries, explore concepts and master skills through joyful hands on learning at all age levels.
As a brain-based method of working with children, the Montessori approach can support the growth of executive functioning abilities, facilitate the acquisition of basic skills and nurture a healthy perception of self.
