The environment presented in the Montessori elementary program helps build a strong mind, as well as good character, responsibility, and respect toward others, while instilling in the child the joy and freedom of learning. The learning process stimulates the child’s mind and creates order within it. This is achieved by letting the child master exercises concretely and then build toward the abstract concept of ideas and exercises.
The teacher’s role is to acknowledge the child’s interest and develop it. For this purpose, the teacher is the link between the child and the material. Through repetitive use of the material, the child achieves perfection in its use and therefore reaches the goals for which it was designed. Thus, the child acquires independence, self-control, accuracy, mental order, enrichment of imagination, and love for work.
