About Montessori

Vidyanjali follows the philosophy and curriculum proposed and established by Dr. Maria Montessori, an Italian physician, educator and anthropologist. It is often referred to as “Education as an Aid to Life”, which ideally begins at birth and continues throughout the course of development.

Maria Montessori was an Italian physician, educator, and innovator, acclaimed for her educational method. The Montessori method is a method of educating young children which stresses development of a child’s own initiative and natural abilities, especially through practical play. This method allows children to develop at their own pace. At Vidyanjali we offer this exceptional Montessori Method of Education from Pre-primary up to III Std.

How is Montessori different from regular schooling ?

Children’s brains are natural learning machines. We believe that regular schooling during the early classes interferes with this natural tendency by imposing restrictions on children at such an young age. A Montessori education merely provides the right environment for such learning to be done at its optimum level. The ‘finger on lips’ kind of discipline is never followed in a Montessori classroom. What is emphasised instead is a sense of individuality and inherent morality.A Montessori environment provides children with the essential freedom to encourage children to speak, move, choose and work with whatever they choose.
