This has led to the Montessori Approach believing strongly in spontaneity and independence whereby the child is encouraged to select their own activities to explore and manipulate for themselves.
A Preschool of good standing like SMILES Montessori has been proven to aid greatly in the development of the child.
All children have an innate desire to learn, this philosophy enthused by Dr. Maria Montessori, is practised by the whole nursery through three traditional Montessori principles.
These are:-.
These three principles guide teachers to control the environment and not the child.
