Are You Familiar with Montessori Inspired Education?
At Rock and Roll Daycare, we pride ourselves on being able to provide Montessori-inspired education. We believe this is an efficient and fun way for kids to learn. We have spent years drawing from the Montessori philosophy and developing strategies so that kids can have the best learning experience possible.
While people may have heard about Montessori education, they may not be quite sure what it is and how it can benefit kids.
What is Montessori-inspired Education?
Montessori education was developed back in 1907 by Maria Montessori. She opened the first Montessori school in Rome and started traveling to tell people about her method. It caught on and now there are thousands of Montessori schools around the world.
Montessori education focuses on self-directed activity, hands-on learning, and collaborative play. Kids learn not only how to work in groups, but also by themselves so that they can explore the world around them. They learn how to be creative in all aspects of their learning.
The quote below from Maria Montessori gives you a good idea of what Montessori-based education is all about:
Some of the benefits of Montessori-inspired education include self-discipline and hands-on learning. Montessori learning is appealing because it focuses on hands-on learning. There is an emphasis on concrete, rather than abstract learning. All students work on activities that can help them learn language and math skills as well as lessons they’re going to use during their lives.
This is one of the many reasons why we embrace the Montessori method at our centers. When you combine this with the musical aspect of our lessons, you get a program that’s second to none. We are proud to combine Montessori, music, and cultural education.
Did you know that Montessori education may even develop math and reading skills? One study shows that five-year-olds who spent time in Montessori classrooms had higher math and reading skills than their peers in public schools. This study also looked at social skills. Researchers found that social development was higher in Montessori students at age 12 versus non-Montessori students.
We celebrate the Montessori method and other philosophers and musicians who contribute to educating children in creative and innovative ways. We believe in our curriculum so much that we are developing subscription boxes that can be delivered to your home. This allows you to have our curriculum at your fingertips. Children can learn at home as well as at our centers.
Be sure to keep your eyes open for these boxes! Also, check out our Instagram page for activities, ideas, and inspiration as we all navigate through the world of parenting and education. During July and August, we’ll be focusing on the United States with hands-on lessons kids will love. We can’t wait to share them with you!
