The Montessori philosophy offers children structure from an early age in how they can deal with life. The activities that our pedagogical staff offers the children are set up according to this method and have a clear beginning and end. The pedagogical employees at our Montessori playgroup Apollo are trained as Montessori teachers.
Individual attention is key
The activities that the children are offered are aimed at dealing with disappointments or conflicts, showing patience and learning to work more independently. The children receive a lot of individual attention to learn the Montessori structure and lessons. They also play with special Montessori materials. These materials ‘grow’ with the child and remain in use at primary school. The pedagogical staff adjusts the level of the game to the developmental level of the child. That way it will always be challenging.
More peace, structure and independence
The classroom of Montessori playgroup Apollo is arranged in such a way that the children are not distracted by toys and other materials that are in sight. Everything has its own place and is behind closed doors. There are clear rules. If the Montessori method is applied consistently, the children learn to work more independently, giving them more freedom.
The Montessori method ultimately brings the children more peace, structure and independence.
