GIU Christian Montessori School is using the Montessori method of teaching from
Pre- Nursery to Kindergarten.
We nurture children with the Gospel and the word of God everyday using Character Education. A kid-friendly place where each child is treated as a special individual whose interests, abilities, skills and talents are considered top priorities. At GIU Christian Montessori School, each child has an opportunity to advance and develop at his or her own speed, with the teacher serving as a guide.
The Montessori Method was created by Maria Montessori (1870 - 1932), an Italian doctor, pedagogue and scientist. A Montessori school places children in an exciting and stimulating environment where all activities are thoroughly developed to ideally suit the children’s needs. The Montessori Method encourages knowledge through activity, providing an effortless learning environment. During the day, your child can choose the work that is attractive to them and well suits their interests, thus fostering a child’s natural love for education and gradually establishing their motivation towards the future goals.
Children are not held back or pushed forward according to the learning rates of their peers. Each child has different abilities and interests and is allowed to work on something until he/she masters it.
A Montessori Day is structured so that a child's focus is never interrupted by having to move to the next lesson before finishing the current one.
This is important because some children are visual learners, some are auditory learners, some learn through body movement and feeling, and some use a combination of several learning avenues.
Montessori’s aim is to nurture the inner motivation of the child while allowing the opportunity for the fullest possible exploration of his/her interests.
How to take care of themselves, their body, their belongings, and their environment.
This provides a sense of security and comfort that they will need to become self-directed. Order helps children become independent because they can always find the work materials that they are going to use next without help. Your child will be learning awareness for others and the fact that you have to take care of the things that are shared.
Montessori recognized that children deserve and need to be treated with the same respect that we treat adults.
If your child was interested in dinosaurs, for example, this interest would be explored throughout the curriculum. Montessori recognized that when a child’s interest is involved, any subject becomes fascinating.
