Our course has been scientifically designed by the IMTTI team with the aim of providing a comprehensive understanding of the Montessori Method and an insight into the applications of the Montessori Tools.
A study of the human development from birth to adulthood, the physical and psychology aspects of the child between three and six years. Dr. Maria Montessori refined her theory of child psychology, borrowing heavily from the sciences of biology and psychology. She described childhood as a process in which a hidden but definite plan of nature unfolds as the child works to create the adult personality.
Special emphasis is placed on the concepts of Montessori principles, such as the ‘Absorbent Mind’, ‘Sensitive Periods’ and the ‘Human Tendencies’, which are the subconscious powers, which guide the child in his self-construction.
The theory deals with the origin and development of the Montessori Method, the role and the training of the adult as ‘Montessori Directress’ and the function of the ‘Prepared Environment’ as a cohesive and scientific environment to self-formation of the child.
In the Practical Life area, children carry out familiar home activities, such as sweeping, polishing, preparing foods, etc. to help the child achieve independence and confidence through meaningful activity with real life objects. They help develop coordination, concentration, hand dexterity, care of one’s self and environment, patience, grace and courtesy.
The Sensorial Material allows children to understand their environment while learning through their senses. Each piece of material has one isolating quality, such as colour, weight, size, shape, texture, sound, smell etc. This enables children to take in impressions with true understanding and gives purpose, order and structure to their learning. Montessori materials are didactic- they allow children to see their mistakes and correct them, developing perseverance and a positive self-image.
Many activities are designed to proceed naturally towards the development of skills for reading and writing. Children first learn the phonetic sound of the letters, followed by building short phonetic words, after which they progress at their individual paces to reading longer phonetic words and are then finally introduced to the different aspects of grammar.
Children are introduced to Mathematics through the use of specially designed materials. This facilitates understanding of physical quantities and matching abstract symbols. By working with concrete materials, the child can see and understand the operations of Addition, Multiplication, Subtraction and Division, thus building a solid foundation for Algebra and Geometry.
Introducing children to Cultural Subjects (Geography, History, Botany, Zoology, Science, Music and Art) to spurs their imagination and understanding of the real world at an age when they are the most sensitive to them. This enables them to envision themselves as part of the interconnected web of human activities.
