It is said that “what is not achieved at six cannot be achieved at sixty”. The very basis of an individual – their character, attitude, etc are acquired in their early formative years and these are almost impossible to change later in their adult lives. Certain quality such as adaptability, leadership, etc are visible at an early stage and if skillfully coached and closely observed, then early corrective measures can be taken to help mould the child for a successful adulthood.
This was the vision of Dr. Maria Montessori. To provide for an environment which is conducive for learning at one’s own pace and a process which encourages expression and creativity. A system of education where conceptual knowledge is gradually imparted, which can be put to meaningful use later.
