During the ages of 3 to 5, children are further exploring their creativity and imagination. Encourage them to do so independently! At Maria Montessori International Academy, we establish an environment that is designed to help children at these ages thrive and grow in their understanding of the world around them.
With the Montessori method of learning, as Dr. Maria Montessori envisioned it, a child is given the “freedom to select what attracts him in his environment, to relate to it without interruption and for as long as he likes, to discover solutions and ideas and select his answer on his own, and to communicate and share his discoveries at will.”
It is important during these early stages of development that children are given the ability to choose their work in an environment that encourages discovery. When a child is allowed to move about freely and engage in purposeful work, she is able to independently and actively embrace challenges. She is able to find solutions through actively working on a task. She is setting the foundation for her lifelong interest in exploring, innovating and learning.
