Our Teaching Methods
For over a century, the esteemed Montessori technique has empowered children to take charge of their learning. Originating from the insights of Italian physician Dr. Maria Montessori, this method acknowledges children's inherent preferences, encouraging them to explore the world with their natural curiosity.
This curriculum revolves around hands-on projects, fostering independence or collaboration with others. Guided by teachers, children lead the way, progressing at their own pace and working toward individual goals.
Similar to Montessori, the Reggio Emilia approach allows children to advance at their own speed in student-driven classrooms. This collaborative style involves students, families, and teachers collectively participating in a child's education. Founded by Loris Malaguzzi, this innovative method centers on peer interaction, celebrating uniqueness, and respecting individual voices.
Malaguzzi believed that children communicate through "a hundred languages," encompassing writing, singing, and art. Educators under this approach encourage children to express themselves and explore the world through various avenues such as music, painting, storytelling, theater, and more. Additionally, the Reggio approach integrates nature into the classroom, creating a warm and nurturing environment akin to a home away from home.
The Theory of Multiple Intelligences
Researched by Harvard University professor Dr. Howard Gardner and introduced in 1983, the Theory of Multiple Intelligences challenges the notion of a one-size-fits-all approach to education. This innovative theory posits that intelligence manifests in various forms, recognizing the uniqueness of every individual's mind and learning style.
Discrediting the uniform mentality, the Theory of Multiple Intelligences demonstrates how children excel and face challenges in different subjects and skills. By tailoring the curriculum to each child's specific needs, this approach positions them to learn and thrive based on their distinct strengths and capabilities.
