A child-centred approach
to learning
The Montessori method of education is a child centred approach to learning that seeks to develop a child's natural interests and activities.

Maria Montessori was the first woman to qualify as a doctor in Italy. She was a scientist, a free thinker, an orator, an educational visionary and perhaps most importantly, a champion for children. Maria Montessori pioneered an approach to education focussing on a child's natural desire to learn and their immense capacity to absorb information, particularly in the early years.

The Montessori method emphasises learning through all five senses, not just through listening, watching, or reading. It's learning by doing. Children at Coast Montessori Preschool learn at their own individual pace and choose their own activities from hundreds of possibilities, with materials that have been introduced to them individually by experienced teachers who know what each child is ready to do.

Montessori is designed to help all children reach their fullest potential at their own unique pace.

Learning is an exciting process of discovery, leading to concentration, motivation, self-discipline, and a lifelong love of learning. It is no coincidence that some of our modern culture's greatest innovators (including the two founders of Google) have had a Montessori education.
